We’ve just released V3.0.24 of z/OS Connect EE.

In this release we have added identity assertion support for users of API requester, enhanced the data available in the z/OS Connect EE SPI for customers writing interceptors for their monitoring applications, and included some APAR fixes.

Identity assertion for API requesters

z/OS Connect EE supports identity assertion for API requesters. With the identity assertion support, you can invoke an API requester from a z/OS application with an identity that is provided in the application context.

In addition, the SAF mapped user identity associated with a request can now be obtained, if one exists.
