Change properties for OFTP on the fly without Stop/start of the application

There was an issue "The value for EFPA is always EFPA 4[N] and IBM Sterling B2B Integrator does not request a change in direction". This was fixed but at the time  of implementing new TP with similar issue, we have to update property OFTP.Global.ListenerPPCCDCheck with the PPC. This requires STOP/START of the application. This is not an ideal solution. Request you to consider a way to change the properties for OFTP on the fly without Stop/start of the application.

How will this idea be used?

As of now, we have to stop/start the application to change OFTP.Global.ListenerPPCCDCheck property.  if this implemented we don't need to stop/start the application. so no downtime required for implementing new OFTP connection with similar issue.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
