    RFE Review. Thank you for raising this RFE and apologies for the time period it has been in Submitted Status. In general we find many users prefer to implement remote control of the IIB/ACE integration node / servers using our administrative REST API directly rather than execute local commands by passing in information through the .broker file given that some of the private details such as those mentioned in the RFE are exposed in that file ... making this interface less amenable for a shared administrative platform. We agree that enhancing this interface to abstract these private details would improve the product. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
