enhancement to the product IBM Cloud App connecect to allow the setting of CCDTs to support

Hi Team,

we are trying to achieve high availability from IBM App connect to connect to Multiple queue managers residing in different regions(London, Frankfurt)

Currently ACEoC (IBM App connect on cloud) product does not currently expose CCDTs for integration servers it runs.

Could you please introduce this feature to ACEoC (IBM App connect on cloud) product as well.

Thanks in advance


The on-premise ACE product does have the ability to use CCDTs which would allow the setting of two queue managers for one mqoutput node

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, which we agree is a good suggestion for expanding the flexibility for the App Connect on IBM Cloud part of our architecture. As noted, in recent ACEv11 fix packs for software, and in ACEv12 software, in the Toolkit experience we have the option of specifying a CCDT URI location in an MQEndpoint Policy. MQEndpoint policies can be referenced from MQ nodes in a flow to control how the connections to MQ queue managers should be made. As noted, we don't currently provide a mechanism in our public cloud offering for the upload of the CCDT file itself, which you would then wish to have injected into the integration server's container when it is started up with the user's BAR file content loaded. In general, CCDT files can be accessed remotely using URIs which are either file based or HTTP based... although my understanding is that currently HTTPS is not supported. Given this, and also given most users preference in this area, we will interpret this idea to be requesting us to use a locally mounted CCDT file in the container rather than a request for enabling remote access. The status of the RFE is updated to Future Consideration.
