Provide a shared service for Flexera FNMS (as an alternative for BigFix/IBM Endpoint Manager Service)
Since v184.108.40.206 of Cloud Pak System, BigFix entitlement is no longer included.
Our organization is transitioning to Flexera FNMS (FlexNet Manager Suite), an IBM-certified alternative to BigFix/ILMT as described here (https://www.flexera.com/blog/it-asset-management/flexera-an-ibm-certified-alternative-for-ilmt/).
Like for BigFix, we would need a shared service that, once set up on a given environment profile, will automatically install and configure a Flexera agent on all the Virtual machines that are deployed within this environment profile. This Flexera shared service should be configurable (Flexera beacon server hostname/IP address, Flexera beacon server port, username and password,... etc).
Having a shared service similar to the one for BigFix would make sure that the Flexera agent is properly installed and configured on every VM without having to customise the patterns or OS images and without manual intervention for all our customers. This feature enhancement is needed by the customer, to be compliant for the used (IBM) software licences.
