Expanding SQL to view certificates assigned to IBM i applications

In a previous release, IBM i SQL enhancements made it possible to view certificate info from the qsys2.certificate_info table using an SQL statement.  The enhancement I am suggesting would take the next step and make it possible to view which certificates are assigned to which applications, using an SQL statement, as can be done with the Digital Certificate Manager.    This may be a more efficient means of reviewing the certificate/application relationship, and help to avoid loss of access due to expiring certificates. 

Currently, the review of multiple certificates, applications, and systems is a time consuming process, and requires accessing the DCM on every partition, as we use certificates created from CSR's on each specific system.  The suggested process could streamline periodic reviews of which applications may lose access and functionality should their certificate expire.

By a join of the certificate info table and a possible application / certificate cross reference, the resulting list could make a periodic review and audit process much more effective.
