Provide an IBM i Service for Collection Services configuration information
I have a need to review the Collection Services configuration when I work with clients. I must either do this manually through the GUI or with the CFGPFRCOL command. There is the Retrieve Collection Services Attributes API, but this would require a program on the client's system, which is problematic.
An IBM i Service that returns all of the configuration information about Collection Services would provide an easy and valuable interface to access this information.
When I am starting a project with a new client, I always review their Collection Services configuration. Today, this is a manual and error prone process. I need a simple way to retrieve the configuration information.
