We’ve just released V3.0.20 of z/OS Connect EE.
There have been some enhancements that you may be interested in, plus some APAR fixes.
Selective Tracking for API Provider
A new capability is available that enables monitoring products to implement selective tracking of z/OS Connect EE requests in the system of record processing the request. This is currently limited to API provider requests sent to CICS and IMS systems. To take advantage of this capability, interceptor writers must implement the new TrackingInterceptor interface.
Multiple group names for the invoke, operations and reader authorization groups
Multiple group names can now be specified for the invoke, operations and reader authorization groups. This enhancement applies to both the global authorization attributes on the
zosconnect_zosConnectManager element, as well as for specific authorization attributes on the
zosconnect_zosConnectAPIs > zosConnectAPI,
zosconnect_services > service,
zosconnect_apiRequesters > apiRequester elements. Multiple group names were already supported for the administration authorization groups.
Note: If you upgrade to 3.0.20 and you are currently using the Authorization interceptor and an LDAP registry, even if you do not use multiple groups, you must change the values of admin, invoke, operations, and reader group attributes to escape the commas in LDAP group names.
