Retrofit the Enhancement Request CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" to CD v6.1

This idea CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" was previously raised for CDz CONDIRECTZ-I-8, and it was informed that it would be available in v6.1. However, after the upgrade to V6.1, it was informed that this enhancement in CDz will only be available in future version V6.2.

This Enhancement Request CONDIRECTZ-I-8 was raised on 2018 which is the most popular CDz enhancement requests with 21 votes. Technically, CDz L3 suggested that retrofitting this enhancement should be both easy and low risk. Therefore, it would be really if this enhancement can be retrofitted in CD v6.1.

How will this idea be used?

If this idea is implemented we will restrict the use of most SNODEIDs to the ACIDs used by the production job scheduler. This will prevent unauthorized use of SNODEIDs as explained in the idea description.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team. We determined that there would be more risk and effort involved with porting this than your original discussions may have included. Because of that we will not be able to back-port the SNODEID control enhancements back to v6.1. I'll need to decline this request, but I would encourage an upgrade to v6.2 to gain this and other advantages that were introduced with that release.
