S3 connector request for Datastage (TS003424088)

Using Infosphere Information Server 11.7.1. Service Pack 2, we noticed that we are unable to create a data connection for Amazon S3 in DataStage to a private endpoint (not the usual public Amazon endpoints).

We are unable to read/write information through a data stage job from a bucket. The same problem we have encoutered in IMAM also.

IBM Engineering team provided some development jars, and an extra variable was added in Administrator Client, through PMR (Case TS003424088), in order to solve the problem, but an enchancement to the product is nedeed.

On the IMAM side the environent variable was added to dsenv.

    Thank you!
