Retrieve TLS Attributes (QsoRtvTLSA) API



The Retrieve TLS Attributes (QsoRtvTLSA) API allows the retrieval of the system-wide System TLS default attributes. QsoRtvTLSA is available in the IBM i 7.4, 7.3, and 7.2 releases with PTFs.

The Retrieve TLS Attributes (QsoRtvTLSA) API retrieves System TLS default attributes. The majority of the attributes can be only be changed with System Service Tools (SST) Advanced Analysis command TLSCONFIG (SSLCONFIG for IBM i 7.2).  Prior to QsoRtvTLSA, those same attributes could only be viewed with TLSCONFIG.  QsoRtvTLSA eliminates the requirement to use SST to view this information and allows using programs and scripts for health check processing for these attributes.
