Add TEXT/BINARY mode marker to Connect Direct log file

Current version of Connect Direct does not log the information if transmission was made in TEXT or BINARY mode. This enhancement is to add clear information about used mode (TEXT/BINARY) to the log in CTRC record

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

Based on the log file, users will have clear information if transfer was performed using TEXT or BINARY mode. This will help to troubleshoot transfers where data was received in format other than expected.

    Arsalan,

    We have not been able to move this enhancement through our backlog into a deliver yet. It does remain a backlog item that we intend to deliver in the future however.

    Thanks,

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I've reviewed this with my team and we are in agreement that this request is reasonable and more detailed CTRC records would be beneficial to our broader customer base. I will accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
