To enhance WebSphere Automation (WSA) to install and rollback multiple iFixes for one WebSphere Application Server
The IDEA is part 1 of an existing IDEA https://ideas.ibm.com/ideas/WASINTOPS-I-107; it limits the change scope to one server.
The current design of the product focuses on detecting unresolved security vulnerabilities that affect traditional WebSphere and Liberty servers. It facilitates the application of security fixes one by one on each server.
Some customers have hundreds of servers. It becomes tedious and time-consuming to apply fixes one by one. In this IDEA, my customer would like to use the GUI of WSA to select a WAS server, display the list of unresolved vulnerabilities, choose the ifixes to be installed (e.g., based on the CVSS score). The downtime for the server should be minimal; e.g., WSA should bring down the server once to install the whole list of ifixes instead of recycling the server for each fix.
The same idea applies to ifixes rollback. If a problem occurs after the ifixes installation, it is necessary to roll back quickly to restore services. The current design of rolling back ifixes one by one needs to be more efficient.
