Allow rename of certificate in DCM

When installing a new certificate I need to reassign all applications to this certificate which could be avoided by renaming the certificate.

Please provide a rename certificate function (or even a replace during import) like it exists in IKEYMAN.

Use Case:

Reassigning all applications to a new certificate is time consuming and IKEYMAN isn't always available (in addition it has issues when working directly on /QIBM/Userdata/ICSS/Cert/Server).

    IBM does not intend to provide a rename solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed. However, we believe a solution already exists for the replace during import scenario. DCM allows a certificate to replace an existing certificate at import when the new certificate has the same public/private key pair as the old certificate. This is possible by reusing the Certificate Signing Request instead of generating a new CSR. When using IBM Digital Certificate Manager for i to import/replace a certificate, ensure the ???Automatically Renewed Certificate" checkbox is checked on the Import Certificate panel.

    IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
