Ability to select SSL Implicit/Explicit in SI FTPS transport

Currently there is not way to specify the SSL type (Implicit/Explicit) from the SI transport page. This is available in SFG listening consumer UI.

The SSL drop down menu in Transports page only has "None" and "must" as options. Should also have "Implicit" and "Explicit" as part of drop down menu.

How will this idea be used?

Currently we have to deal with this situation in a custom business process and pass on "SSL_IMPLICIT" or "SSL_EXPLICIT" in the FTP begin session service.

This will help in avoiding a need of a custom process for the common onboarding action, and this is available in SFG which is inconsistent between SI and SFG from product perspective.

    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.
