KeyAlias option for MQTT Nodes & any SSL enabled nodes

Despite being in ACEv12, The MQTT publish & subscribe node is being widely used by IoT industry and majority of the clients with whom we interact prefer to have SSL option enabled.

Unlike the HTTP nodes, the MQTT nodes does not have the option of a KeyAlias concept i.e. the option to choose the SSL certificate at message flow level from a list of private certificates isn't supported and the only option to keep adding new integration server to host a single flow.

The idea is to enable the keyAlias for MQTT node.

With V12 we see several different nodes and we are certain SSL must be an option for it.

In general, if any node supports SSL, it needs to have the concept for KeyAlias and it should be the default product behavior!

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, which we agree would be a nice little enhancement when wanting to select a specific certificate and avoid needing to separate flows into a different server. Status updated to Future Consideration.
