Requesting ability to replace certificate used for Admin UI connection to z/OS

We would like a feature added to the installation of IDAA on z /OS which allows us to provide a certificate for the Admin UI interface to z/OS. Currently during installation, when logging into the Appliance Installer, a message appears indicating a certificate is not trusted because it was not signed or known by the customer domain. An Add Exception option allows you to proceed with the installation but our UI Admin connections are being flagged with a Qualys rating of HIGH which requires immediate remediation. Our options are to create an exception for the certificate supplied by IBM which is a difficult sell and it will eventually expire which will mandate a replacement.

We need an option which allows us to supply a signed certificate valid for our company at the time of the installation which would be stored and used within the container for the UI Admin SSL connection.

Based on current compliance and regulatory guidelines, the lack of such a feature is a show stopper for us and honestly we are very surprised that is not the case for most customers in today's environment.
