IIB FTEOutput node to create a sequential GDG dataset

We would like to use the FTEOutput node to create a sequential GDG dataset. The MQ FTE native commands allow the ability to specify the dataset attributes, but this does not look to be the case for the IIB FTEOutput node:

The IIB FTEOutput node does have the ability to specify the “Destination file name”. While we could use SMS to manage the dataset attributes it would be nice to have the ability to specify them similar to MQ FTE native commands.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this enhancement request has been in Submitted status. We agree that this suggestion (potentially implemented using a setting in the LocalEnvironment or on the node properties directly) would enhance the flexibility of the MQ FTEOutput node. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
