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 concurrent session limits are not exceeded and if is then to triggers an alert to the specific user or team or if number of calculated PVU's didn't changed over time by adding upgrading a hardware.


What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

It will help to check compliance in use with the issued license

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience and your recommendations.

    To implement such capabilities would need some changes on Connect:Direct side as well since CCD would base off its license reporting on information residing in Connect Direct. After reviewing this we have decided to consider to implement this idea in one of the future releases based on the roadmap priorities.

    If you have any additional feedback, thoughts or ideas, or if there is anything else I can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation. Appreciate your patience.


    Thanks,

    Product Management
