Unresponsive message flow options - Need to add the feature to restart only the message flow instead of whole EG

In IIB V9/V10, unresponsive flows/services doesn't allow to manually restart/stop the flow/service only.

Existing option For Unresponsive Flows issue:

I)Command prompt option -
If the flow is not stopped for mqsistopmsgflow command,
The current option is to stop the flow with force option from command prompt. This option will restarts the whole Execution group/Integration server.

2) Admin console option:
From IIB Admin console, for unresponsive flows, the option provided is limited to Restart the execution group using policy

looking for the feature to include to stop/restart only the flow for unresponsive flows to reduce the impact on rest of the flows/services running on related Integration server.

    RFE Review. Although we have not yet managed to prioritize the implementation of this feature we continue to monitor its popularity. Status of the RFE is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thank you for raising this RFE. The WorkLoad Management policy features which we added to IIB in v9 have proven very popular with our users (including the current capabilities which we have offered in this area with processingTimeoutSec and processingTimeoutAction), and we support the idea of further future enhancements in the area of more granular restart options for unresponsive flows. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
