CICD With Jenkins

Why not create a plugin for Jenkins for secured remote deployment. Like the remote secured debug.
Use a TLS key for SSL handshake. Jenkins will upload the BAR file and deploy it on the APP Connect Enterprise cloud.
Also allow during deployment to change the URL if there an HTTP or REST of SOAP input.

Also why should we stop the Application flow to update the BAR. The update bar should be more user friendly.
Update bar will:
1. Stop the Application flow
2. Update the bar file
3. Start the Application flow

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE and apologies it has been in submitted status for a while. We agree with the concept of making remote deployment to the ACE on Cloud service easier for CI / CD pipelines, and also acknowledge that there is significant investment and interest in Jenkins from a healthy constituent of our userbase. Of course, the RFE mentions other similar tools as well, and this is always our dilemma - how far to make product features open for use with 3rd party tools using generic interfaces, versus pre-built specific plugins for particular tools. We will certainly continue to focus on improving deployment pipelines with the product, and for this reason we are updating the status of this RFE to Uncommitted Candidate, even if the precise technology for doing this is still under debate (further views and votes from the community on this RFE would be appreciated).
