Build Forge v8 Does Not Work on RedHat Linux v7 OS With SELINUX Enabled

We have new servers with OS RedHat Linux v7.3 with SELINUX enabled. We have installed Build Forge Agent v8.0.0.3 on them. The Build Forge Agent connection testing is failing when SELINUX is enabled but is success when SELINUX is disabled. The root cause is: some of the existing BF Agent features are violating SELINUX policies, for example - root directory script running, etc. Based on the working session with IBM development team, currently no Build Forge version is supporting OS Linux with SELINUX enabled yet. Since all our new servers will be Linux with SELINUX enabled , based on the Company risk policy, this issue is seriously affecting our Product release and routine tasks daily. We are highly needing this feature enhancement to be added at the earliest time. Please let us know if you need more info.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.
