    IBM believes that the request described has been solved and is available for the IBM i 7.4 and 7.3 releases with IBM i Service QSYS2.CERTIFICATE_INFO().

    IBM agrees with the request and a solution appears to be desirable and feasible. IBM intends to provide a solution. However, IBM's plans may change and no commitment is made that a solution will be provided.

    IBM has received the requirement and is evaluating it. IBM will provide a response after evaluation is complete.

    The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address.

    IBM has stated that IBM i services are the strategic future of system management. The lack of this service leaves a significant gap in the management of any application, specifically certificates can expire without any notification in the base OS so the montoring of this with an IBM i service seems to align with IBM's strategy.

    Background: The CEAC members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at

    I like the idea of making this an IBM service, but in the meantime, if I've understood your request, you can do this in 7.4 with a new Retrieve Certificate Usage Information API, Service Program: QICSS/QYCDCUSG.

    I hope that helps. Steve
