Add ability to monitor Connect:Direct I5 on any selected port.

Due to CIP mandate, Cigna is disabling all unencrypted ports and we need the ability to select an SSL encrypted port in SCC to monitor I5 Connect:Direct nodes. SCC currently monitors I5 nodes on default ports and current default unencrypted ports pose a security risk to Cigna.

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

Configure Control Center to monitor I5 Connect:Direct servers on ports of our choosing. Control Center currently provides this feature for all other platforms and is needed for I5.
