Administrative API for ACEcc

App Connect Designer is received quite well by the customers  (our “low code offering” to build integrations) 

- However, the tooling itself is missing any way to automatically handle “versions” or “exports” of the applications / flow (only manual export). Because of this a variety of the customers is not using this tooling 

- There seems to be now an API within the SaaS offering – what would be a step forward; but we would need it on the “container offering” as well 

- In addition: there is no User Management in Kubernetes – which makes is not usable on this platform at all.

    Idea review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this suggestion, which overall we feel would positively improve the product offering. There are a few different items mentioned in the description here, and the title for the idea could be misinterpreted as relating to the version of Designer which is provided as part of our public cloud offering ... so for the sake of avoiding any future confusion we will treat this idea as a request for an administrative API for the ACEcc offering. The other aspects such as an improved/more granular model for user managed access control are also noted suggestions which we will be tracking internally in any case. Other readers may be interested in the ideas in related areas covered under:
