MFT support for MQ running in CP4I

We have MFT for MQ running on-prem system and planning to migrate to CP4I. Since MFT is currently not being supported in CP4I environment, we are not able to proceed with the migration. It will be helpful, if the MFT is supported in CP4I environment

    HI Santhosh,

    Moving this to 'Delivered' as we believe that you should be able to achieve what you want to do in the current CP4I.

    If this does not meet your needs, please re-raise or open a support case and we'll be happy to assist you further.

    HI Santhosh, I've talked to MQ Product Management @Callum Jackson about this. There are two parts to MQ MFT, the Queue Manager itself which is available in CP4i and also the 'File Agent' part which reads/writes the files. This is available to run as a container although you will need to configure a volume mount so that it can 'see' the file correctly.

    MQ docs confirm you can use MQ operator to deploy queue manager for MFT coordinator/command/agent queue manager. (the MFT Agents are run separately and users have to build those themselves)

    Just wondering which functionality you're not finding available under CP4i?
