Security Exit must be usable by different SFTs and the STCname should be part of the RACF profile namess

In our environment we run several Connect:Direct stc's in one environment.

The provided Security Exits do not offer a possibility to setup separate profiles for these stc's.
We would like this to be changed.

Second what we ask for is to add the STCname to the RACF profiles so that anyone can find the Connect:Direct profiles based on, part of, their names .

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

We can setup different security settings for each Connect:Direct stc.

    Good morning Chris ,

    I am a bit disappointed in your (re)action, I was on holiday for a few weeks and on my return last Monday, I was confronted with some production issues.
    After that I started handling my mail and found yours yesterday.
    I wanted to try and create an answer for you today but that is no longer needed.

    With kind regards Erik Dijkerman

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I reviewed it with my team, but we didn't quite understand the request. We reached out looking for additional detail, but unfortunately didn't receive a response. Because of that I must assume this enhancement is no longer needed and I will need to decline the request. Please don't hesitate to open a new RFE if you could share additional information or have new enhancements we should consider however.
