Enhance patch automation to support tWAS instances installed by IM in Admin mode
Many tWAS instances were installed by IM in Admin mode. During WSA patch installation, the playbook terminated with error message:
>>> ValueError: Installation directory is not owned by wasadmin but IM accessRights is admin
The tWAS was ...
When configuring the email server settings, it would be very helpful to have a "Test connection" type button to ensure the mail configuration works. In the event of an error, exposing the error through the UI (and not requiring directions to the p...
IDEA Fixpack Augmentation – Priority 1 The recommendation is to augment the remediation artifact to include the entire history of the available fixpacks that are applicable to a vulnerability which is not done today. The current view on the glass reflects IBM’s design decision taken from a security standpoint, that WSA will promote the latest fixpack as a best practice and will most likely remain as the default choice. Kaiser can work with the API approach to install fixpacks that are not at the latest level via API customization but it would be nice to have it in the UI visibility.
As an example of why this approach would be useful, consider Kaiser’s current approach offers developers the choice of n-1, n-2, and current fixpack version. A view on the glass that will show if eight of ten CVE’s are fixed in one fixpack, that K...
IDEA #1 - PRIORITY #1 - Enhance WSA to display entire available & applicable remediation artifacts. Currently, WebSphere Automation displays only the absolute latest remediation artifacts (like APARs, etc).
Additionally, WebSphere Automation selects (by default) the most recent but smallest remediation artifact. Unfortunately, this method and model assumes a security operational team can aligned with IBM recommendation.
There is no filter to choose under what criteria to send notification to whom. e.g. Different teams are responsible for different cells, so notification can be sent based on cell names and the target team. Or some managers prefer to get notificati...
Provide "summary view" of WebSphere Automation registered servers, total servers, number of cores, etc
Since WebSphere servers are registered with WebSphere Automation, and WebSphere Automation is licensed on the total number of cores available to the registered WebSphere servers, we should provide a "summary page" that shows the total number of re...
ServiceNow is how we track change tickets. It would be nice if WebSphere Automation integrated with ServiceNow so that the installations driven by WebSphere Automation could be started from ServiceNow flows.
