    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in status of Uncommitted Candidate. Since initially raised, the product architecture has evolved and configurable services have now become policies in ACEv11. Over time we expect to make all policies redeployable without the need for integration server restart (at time of writing 25 policy types are redeployable and 8 still require server restarts for changes to take effect). So, despite the business climate not yet leading to prioritization of the implementation of this RFE it does remain on our roadmap. Status maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thank you for raising this RFE. We agree this would be a good enhancement for the product. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
