AWS Adapter Enhancements

Enhancement list for AWS adapter includes the following:

1) perimeter server support

2) begin/end session functionality

3) managing credentials in SFG profile (obscuring creds requires that a script is run on the credentials before entering into SFG)

4) Passing the CA Cert to the adapter from SFG

How will this idea be used?

The AWS adapter does not include many features that are supported in other protocol adapters.

    In my opinion, the main purpose of the AWSS3ClientForB2Bi adapter would be to allow communication between the Sterling B2B Integrator platform and the AWS cloud on the Internet by Perimeter Servers using the AWSS3 protocol, the exception should be the use of the AWS adapter for transferring files over the local network.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. We agree that this idea would add value, and have added it to our roadmap. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest and adjust priority if needed.

    With regards to perimeter server support, we only plan to support http proxy and have added that support. In container deployments we are finding use of software defined networks (SDNs) are making perimeter servers reduant. Happy to discuss this in further detail if needed.
