Key Management tool in IBMi Access Client Solutions

The Key Management tool within IBMi Access Client Solutions does not have the same functionality as the IBM Key Management tool within IBMi Access for Windows.
Within the ACS version you can only view/delete/export signer certificates. There is no ability to work with personal certificates.

Use Case:

This 'missing' functionality is required to view/delete personal certificates and to create certificate requests.

    Additional support to work with Personal Certificates will be provided in the November 2019 update. Generating a certificate request will not be provided. Digital Certificate Manager (DCM) on IBM i and keytool in Java can be used for generating a certificate request.
