Integrate iKeyman with Connect Direct Web Services

IBM Control Center and IBM Connect Direct Secure + both have iKeyman integrated/included with the product.  Why isn't this the case for Connect Direct Web Services?

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

Having iKeyman integrated with Connect Direct Web Services would bring it in line along with other IBM applications that currently ship with iKeyman.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and although iKeyman is available we can likely make improvements to how it's accessed. I will accept this request as a placeholder to make some improvements likely by adding a start menu item to access iKeyman and some other common tools and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.

    This enhancement request can be deleted.  iKeyman is included.  My apologies.
