Setting CNDS to work in AWS Cloud based RDS

Our CADS 8.3 system has been installed in AWS Cloud.  It has worked well for a couple of years.  Recently the RDS instance that contains the CADS repository was set to enable SSL and CADS stopped working.  IBM support Ticket TS014997706 was established to get CADS working.  The latest information from IBM states:

The SSL configuration for MSSQL server for on-prem installation works fine. This has been tested internally and confirmed as per product offering specifications.  AWS Cloud based RDS support is not explicitly supported from CaDS. For any further support on these, a feature enhancement ticket has to be created and approved through product/offering manager
