We’ve just released V3.0.15 of z/OS Connect EE which includes some important APAR fixes. We have also added some enhancements that you may like to try out:
Identity propagation over REST to Db2 using RACFÂ® PassTickets
Identity propagation over REST to invoke Db2 RESTful services is now supported through using PassTickets. z/OSÂ® Connect EE generates a PassTicket for the specific user ID and target Db2 subsystem, which is then passed in the HTTP Authorization header to Db2 where it is validated.
A distributed ID is included in the request to z/OS Connect EE and is then authenticated and mapped to a SAF user ID. The SAF user ID from the request is then propagated to Db2 with the generated PassTicket, where further authentication is then carried out by Db2. If a specific user ID is required for authentication with Db2 for all requests, then this user ID can be configured in your server.xml configuration file.
WebSphere Liberty Profile 188.8.131.52
The version of WebSphere Liberty Profile that is embedded in z/OS Connect EE V3.0.15 is V184.108.40.206. The version level of the WebSphere Liberty Profile appears in both the top of the z/OS Connect EE messages.log file, and also in the STDOUT logfile.
