IBM Connect:Direct license auditing and alerting through Control Center Director
The idea is to have a Control Center director to have a functionality to verify if usage of IBM Connect:Direct installation meets licensing requirements for specific machine. for example in case of session based licenses if number of allowed concu...
Please consider to move or duplicate some of the checks before actual upgrade action. For example - cfgcheck can be initiated before upgrade action, this will eliminate situation where e.g. error in netmap.cfg/userfile.cfg causes rollback action a...
Add Management of Non-Stop C:D Nodes to Control Center
Right now Control Center lacks the ability to be able to manage C:D nodes running on nonstop systems. We would like to utilize Control Center as a centralized management system for C:D running on all platforms.

Ability to update the "bootstrap.truststore" with the new public keys of CD nodes without running configCC.sh that mandates to stop ICC
Customers normally add/configure CD nodes whenever they are ready to manage the CD node from CCD. Hence configuring CD nodes in CCD is not one time activity and rather an ongoing activity. CCD requires the public keys of all CD nodes to be importe...
For silent install, users get a chance to set upgrade options (parameters). One of those is cdai_verifyUpgrade which enables/disables step that performs loopback transfer after upgrade to verify if upgrade was successful. If loopback transfer is n...
