IBM Sterling Ideas
formerly Watson Supply Chain
Currently, Global Mailbox only supports installation against MQ servers which use unencrypted communications, and username+password authentication.
After installation, the product supports re-configuring using TLS connections and certificate based client/server authentication.
This leads to the pointless exercise of having to install a MQ Server instance solely for the purpose of passing validation.
The product installer should support TLS options, or provide an option to bypass/ignore connection test validation.
How will this idea be used?
Customer will install the product using IBM installation Manager.
If using a response file, they would add additional parameters to specify TRUSTSTORE_FILE, TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD, KEYSTORE_FILE , KEYSTORE_PASSWORD and CIPHER. Alternatively, an option to bypass the validation using a property eg. "MQ_CONNECTION_VALIDATION=false".
If using the IIM GUI, appropriate fields to supply the parameters should be provided.
If Connection Test fails, there should be an option to ignore & proceed, instead of the installation being blocked.
