Adding Windows "Group Managed Service Accounts" support to App Connect Enterprise

We have dedicated service accounts un which we run ACE.

We are required under corporate security policy to periodically change the passwords for these accounts.

It is a desired objective of corporate security that the password should not be known by individuals.

Windows gMSA appears to facilitate corporate security requirements and simplify the password change process.

    Idea review. Thank you very much for taking the time to raise this suggestion which is being moved forward into Future Consideration status. We note that this implementation would only bring benefit for Windows platform users, which would need to be taken into consideration when prioritising enhancements by the business, but nevertheless this would clearly bring benefit in terms of being able to assist with periodic password changes in a centralised way and reduce the number of humans who have access, thus reducing potential scope of threats.
