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 Kaiser could choose to install said fixpack with eight of ten CVE’s included and apply the remaining two ifixes separately.
