Automatically - Enable App Connect IIB Broker zOS 117 Statistics after application deploy.

Activation of 117 statistics using the mqsichangeproperties command is overridden when a deploy is performed using the Tookit or AIM Tool.

Enable 117 statistics to stay on before, during, and after deploy.

Requesting this be part of the IBM product as we currently must use the mqsichangeproperties command in a process setup to run after a deploy

(1) manually, (2) scripted (3) external automation (4) scheduled batch job.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. When IBM Integration Bus was rearchitected to become App Connect Enterprise (v11, released on distributed platforms in 2018), significant changes were made to the deploy chain of the product to ensure that the runtime could independently store in memory a record of the deployed artifacts (and their properties) and then separately store settings such as monitoring and statistics. This evolution was done in order to meet usecases such as the one presented where users require "sticky settings" to be persisted across restarts. The architectural changes which facilitated this on ACE were widespread in scale across the product's architecture and came in combination with the new ACE policy artifacts which replace the prior concept of configurable services and can be deployed and overridden dynamically. This background explanation is made here to reinforce that we approve of the idea of the usecase, and also understand very well the scope of engineering which would be required to fulfil this request. Unfortunately, although this might on the face of it seem like a "small request just to persist some settings", the cost to implement the wider architectural changes which would be needed to support this are not so small ... The good news of course is that these changes have been made in ACE and the feature to exploit them is also there in ACE. The bad news is that there has not been sufficient business demand emerge for ACEv11 / ACEv12 to be ported to the zOS platform. Whilst there is clear demand for certain select new functions to be made available on the zOS platform, these features have not required the rearchitecture that comes with ACE. For this reason, whilst IBM does plan a future zOS IIB release, it is not likely to satisfy the request in this RFE.

    Given the above explanation, unfortunately on this occasion we are updating the status of this request to Not Under Consideration.
