New IBM i SQL Service to Retrieve Certificate Usage Information

Need a DB2 SQL Service equivalent to API : Retrieve Certificate Usage Information (QYCDRCUI, QycdRetrieveCertUsageInfo)


Use Case:

We already have the CERTIFICATE_INFO table function, this would allow to know the certificates used (by DCM applications)

    The CAAC has reviewed this Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a “nice to have” low priority feature, but there are other enhancements that would benefit a wider range of people and businesses.


    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual Ideas on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your Idea.

    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.

    I've done most of the ones IBM hasn't myself. It is available in #SQLTools.
    I doubt they're going to do the RETRIEVE APIs ever, so I've provided those and many, many others as well... and all on V7R2
    But not this one. :)

    Are we really going to ask IBM to write SQL functions for the more than thousands of API's that exist ?

    To me this sounds like waste of time and resources... I would recommend that IBM invests these resources in questions that provide real added value (ie. that don't exist today or for which no API is available or other alternative is available).

    I feel really bad when other RFE's related to for example security don't get fixed but that SQL function thirty-seven is being provided because people are to lazy (either in terms of knowledge of money hiring a developer) to write a wrapper around the API.
