Add zOS SPOE information to Control Center Director
Access to the SPOE (Single Point of Entry) zOS table via Control Center Director would allow the team to at least be able to view the existing entries and assist in possible trouble shooting of issues involved that may require an update to that ta...
Control Center Director/Monitor - Updating Key and Trust store databases
Currently in order for CCM/CCD to be "aware" of change made to the key and/or trust store databases, the event processors (application) must be down. The configCC.bat/sh must be run in order to make CCM/CCD aware of the changes. There needs to be ...
SCCD permits to create templates to Secure+/netmap/userfile/Initparm ...
But it must be created one Template for every item. So, if you'd like to add one server in a netmap you must create one template (there is no problem). But if you'd like to ...
It will be very useful be able to compare entire userfile/netmap files between servers. We have seen that's it's possible to compare only one item but it's needed to compare entire files to identify differences between both files.
We need to use SCCD to deploy user configured xlate tables to CD Linux and CD Windows servers. We have more than 2100 servers, and if we need to change the xlate tables in all of them one by one, the cost in hours it's not affordable.

Make package.folderWatchDelayInSecs Available in System Settings
My understanding is that the settings for package.folderWatchDelayInSecs are only available through the RESTful API. This setting along with all settings should be made available in the system settings as well.
Prevent Netmap Node deletion if node is referenced by a Functional Authority
When an admin retires a netmap node that is no longer needed, sometimes we end up with an orphaned Functional Authority (FA) referencing a now non-existent netmap node. To prevent this from occurring, a new functionality could be created where Con...
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.
