I thought that easiest might be yo manually edit the uci config file, but I 
experience no difficulty even in LuCI with 21.02, when I test your example 
from GUI. It is visible in GUI, and gets in right format into /etc/config/luci

Also execution seems to go (I will send the screenshot separately as it might 
not get into).

So I am not sure what is the exact difficulty???   If the difficulty is in 
exeution, it might be about parsing uci / javascript with special chars like 
">" and "/" plus passing them to the shell combo.

One easy solution might to manually edit a script file with that required 
command  into /etc and then using LuCI only to execute that script.  The 
LuCI commands feature is not meant for really complex things.
