Recently I raised a case #TS004338549 for getting support on DCM (Digital Certificate Manager). During interaction, I came to know that there is no mechanism to do the below two tasks within DCM.
1) There is no future to give "Read only Access" to DCM for specific user(s) or team 2) There is no mechanism to track/audit DCM activity.
Really it is a shocking news to know that IBM doesn't have such auditing future specific for DCM which is most important function of IBM i.
On behalf of ANZ bank - iSeries Infrastructure team, I highly recommend to have a specific mechanism to implement the above said two enhancements in upcoming days.
We are global iSeries infrastructure team at our back. But on the other hand, we do have country wise admin team to manage IBM i Systems. For them, there is a need to provide read only access to DCM. But there is no such option available as of today.
Then we tried to provide full access to DCM provided their activity should be tracked/audited properly since DCM is most important security related component. When we asked IBM for such option to track/audit DCM, IBM said that there was no mechanism.
