PINNED Add support to controllerWorkflow script to restart BPs that are in "completed, error" state by individual BP IDs
During system issues, we are unable to bulk restart the BP IDs at a time. This is causing huge support effort in the clean-up process. Existing controllerWorkflow.sh script doesn't have a solution to restart the BPIDs that are in "completed, error...

Connect Direct Z/OS Password-less Sign-On : Use certificate authentication for the CD session. CD currently supports this for the API connection (e.g. port 1363) and exploring if this could be added for the server connection (i.e. port 1364). The goal would be to use the certificate Common Name as the user ID as we do for the API connection or expand to allow other sources for the user ID – Jobname, SPOE, in-line SIGNON, batch user ID, etc. – and define order of precedence.

Issue Description: Client has security initiative to remove passwords being exposed in jobs. If there is a sign on ID used it is ignored if there is a password less ID and defaults to the job card ID. If client removes password from the sign-on ca...

Provide a secure location for SaaS customers to store API secret IDs and keys so that they can more securely manage the application

As a part of any OMS implementation, integration with 3rd party external system is common. It will be great if IBM OMoC provided a secure vault solution to store API secret id and keys. For On Prem, customers could encrypt the secret id and keys. ...

Allow Connect Direct processes "Waiting on I/O" to stop consuming a Thread (similar to how SFTP operates)
