Use Configuration Management with SCC to view available CD configuration without FULL CD access.

Using CDz (Mainframe Connect Direct) user with Operator Authority does not allow to view the available CD configuration using ICC - no 'Configure Server' option available in ICC.
The same user used through CD Browser or directly using NDM API allows to view the read-only NDM configuration.
The enhancement would allow to view the available configuration from NDM server in ICC even if the used Functional User does not have admin privileges over Connect Direct but it allows it directly when set up with read only access.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. This capability is included in newer versions of Control Center which allow granular control over user that have edit and view only access to C:D configurations. I've included a link below to our documentation where this is covered. If you have any questions about their use please don't hesitate to contact our support organization however.

    This is controllable based on the permissions granted to the functional authority of the user ID that Control Center uses with Connect Direct.
