Password Vault Support for Connect Direct for Windows

IT Security forbids the use of static passwords and mandates that they are changed periodically.

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

Connect Direct will have an "exit" to retrieve a password, in real time, from a Password Vault (Cyberark etc) or from a local cache. The passwords are changed frequently to comply with IT Security Standards

    Thank you for your patience as we work on developing this enhancement. I'm pleased to announce that password vault support has been delivered in the latest C:D v6.1.0.2 maintenance. Please visit IBM Fix Central to pull down the latest maintenance so that you can start leveraging this enhancement.


    Sincerely,

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe that this would be a useful addition to Connect:Direct. I have accepted this as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to slot this into our roadmap moving forward.

    Sincerely,
