Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement. I'm pleased to announce that this has been provided in File Agent v188.8.131.52 which is available on IBM's Fix Central website. Please download and apply this maintenance which will allow you to start leveraging certificate authentication with File Agent. I've also included a link below to the FA documentation which has been updated to cover the new capability.

I think it would be a very nice option. I did read that the API now has the ability to use certificates for authentication. That could be ported over to the File Agent.
this would be a valid option, but currently the FA has no capabilities of
a keystore where a client certificate could be stored.
If this could be implemented it would be a great enhancement.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / kind regards

Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we agree that password maintenance for File Agent should be easier We will accept this enhancement request as an uncommitted candidate with the goal of improving this experience. I cannot guarantee that certificates will be used for this activity, but will look to add a roadmap item to minimize password maintenance effort for File Agent.

How would your suggestion apply to the File Agent API user?
