Graphical Data Map leave message body as is

Can you please give us the option to leave the message payload as is in a graphical data map to give us the ability to create generic maps that only maps message headers (i.e. MQMD, MQRFH2, HttpInputHeader, etc) and LocalEnvironment?

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this idea has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration. We absolutely still see value in this request, but noting the relatively modest voting interest, and the fact that there are several other ways to achieve the usecase with the product, unfortunately this idea has not yet received sufficient interest for it to become a priority. We will continue to monitor. Status of the idea is kept as Future Consideration.

    Hi Hakan, thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE. We understand the use case well (essentially equivalent in spirit to the Compute mode property on the Compute node) and agree that this would be an excellent enhancement to improve the re-usability of maps in different kinds of flow situation. Status of this RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
