Enhance mqsireportproperties to report on a single flow and mqsichangeproperties to change properies for a single flow

We need the mqsireportproperties to report on a single flow to see what the property settings are and then to change the properties to what it needs to be with mqsichangeproperties on a single flow.

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this suggestion has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration, during which time the product has evolved considerably. Specifically, in more recent versions of the product - in particular ACEv11 and ACEv12 - the product's administrative REST API now returns this kind of information, and it also lets you update the message flow thread pools without needing to redeploy your flows or restart the integration server. For example, consider this GET request which you can issue against a message flow deployed to a node-owned integration server:

    curl -X GET http://localhost:4444/apiv2/servers/default/applications/Example_JSONObject_ESQL/messageflows/Example_JSONObject_ESQL

    In the active section of the JSON response from the above REST API invocation, you will find properties for the flow's "threads", "threadsCapacity" and "threadsInUse". You could then update the thread pool by invoking the admin API like this:

    curl -X POST http://localhost:4444/apiv2/servers/default/applications/Example_JSONObject_ESQL/messageflows/Example_JSONObject_ESQL/update-thread-pool?size=3

    These APIs are also handily exposed from the web user administration interface. Given that these enhancements meet the core use case of being able to report and script changes post-deploy to this parameter, we are closing the RFE as delivered.

    Thank you for raising this RFE. We'd just like to check we've interpreted your comments correctly. The property which you would like to enquire on, is the Additional Instances property? Assuming so, then of course we have an API to enquire on this value, and the ability to override it (both the generic pool shared between multiple input nodes in a flow, or the specific pool for a specific input node) in a BAR file ... but we acknowledge this is not quite the same as mqsireportproperties and mqsichangeproperties which is easier to script. Status of this RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
