In our company, all the un-used accounts/partner profile ids should be disabled if they are not being logged/authenticated for 90 days. Post disable, these accounts should be deleted from the system in next 15 days.
In Sterling B2B Integrator and Sterling File Gateway, while creating the partner profile from file gateway page, specifying the username is mandatory field. (Refer the attachment)
During the listening consumer profile creation, we will input the user account (as it is mandatory) and then user account gets created along with partner profile. This user account will never be used/authenticated as it is not initiating the file transfer/connection.
Due to our SOC2 security requirements, this account should be deleted from the system. We have approached IBM support team and been advised that, this account should be not deleted as it linked to partner profile and will cause issues during the next upgrades.
Due to the way, sterling integrator and sterling file gateway is designed, we are not able to delete the unused accounts that are tagged to partner profile and opened a security exception within our company.
This enhancement request is to remove the mandatory field of account information during the partner profile creation.
Let me know if you need any additional details.
