Option to disable client authentication for Sterling Control Center Classic Console

Currently, our company will access Sterling Control Center Classic Console through desktop. With client authentication enabled for SCC, we need to maintain separate scripts on each user desktop.

This will be overhead in maintaining multiple certs on users desktop. If Client authentication for certificate is disabled, SCC certificate will be used for encryption and will simplify the process.

How will this idea be used?

This idea will be used and will avoid multiple certificates on users certificates.

    Thanks for submitting the enhancement request. In our next release we will be depracating the Classic console (Java client) and moving all the capabilities to Modernized web UI. This requirement will be automatically addressed then. Thanks and appreciate your patience.
