Extend processcontrolcriterias CDWS web service in order to run simple transfers on-the-fly

Currently in CDWS the "processcontrolcriterias" web service allows to run Connect Direct transfers using processFile with path to *.cdp process file which must be present on the server prior to Connect Direct transfer execution.


For simple transfers this is inconvenient and forces user to create and maintain local *.cdp files on the server. CDWS should allow to submit the transfers on-the-fly by sending process definition as the HTTP data.


A new webservice should be created with basic functionality supporting: from, to, sysopts, pre-post tasks features.

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

This will simplify Connect Direct transfers execution process a lot. Users will not have to maintain local set of *.cdp files.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed this request thoroughly with my team and we believe that adding the ability to build a process on the fly via our REST APIs would be a valuable enhancement. We will accept this and look to add it to our roadmap moving forward. Thank you for leveraging our RFE tool and please don't hesitate to open new requests for other ideas we should consider.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
