WMB Node to read user defined configurable service properties

Nowadays one have to use message broker java -API to read user defined configurable service proprerties(UDCP). I could be useful if one could just add node to flow and set UDCP -name for it to fetch particular setting to for example Environment -tree.

    As part of our regular commitment to reviewing RFEs, we have re-reviewed this RFE and its status is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate. However, we do also note that an example of what is being asked for is available as part of the ACEv11 User Defined Node tutorial (In Toolkit find the tutorial by browsing to Help > Tutorials Gallery > Using a Java User-Defined Node which reads a User-Defined Policy ... or in a web browser go to

    I would like the future ESQL function to be implemented in a context-aware manner so that access to the configurable service could be restricted with a policy (containing basicly a list of Applications allowed to access the service in runtime)

    I would love to see this feature where the values are easily accessible using ESQL as suggested by zpatxx

    Preferably allow access to (user defined and maybe other types of) configurable service values inside compute nodes using ESQL.

    I would also be interested in this, although in properties accessible from the transformation nodes (as described by IBM dev's comment).

    Thanks for raising this requirement. As you've seen, it's currently only possible to access configurable service information from the CMP API, although as of you can also access it from the REST API, which has the advantage of not requiring additional libraries on the client.
    I agree that it is desirable to allow configurable services to be accessed from within message flows without requiring Java. My feeling however is that this access should be as close to the data as possible (for ease of access and optimum performance), and also be a good technology fit for users of all backgrounds. This is why I would favour making the properties available through the existing set of transformation nodes (ESQL Compute, Mapping, .NET etc.) rather than exposed as a separate node. In any case, we'll investigate allowing this access in a follow-in release or fixpack. Thanks again!

    With "message broker java -API" I meant Administration (CMP) API.
