REST API expose for Impact Policies

Need a supported and structured method to expose as endpoints for the impact polices to be called as REST api with documented Jason Payload Specifically for the MWM policies.
As of today the policy can be executed with REST which is not documented and structured.
When this MWM policy is executed with parms of JSON payload there is no validations done .
The validations are done at the Impact Maint window UI.
This validation needs to happen when run as REST calls.

    Can't more than agree. A REST interface to trigger a policy is needed.
    I had an RFE opened in the past which was denied. But there is now progress.

    Now there seems to be progress. APAR IJ33849: "TRIGGER IMPACT POLICY USING REST API" is open since July 23rd - obviously the REST interface exists and just needs to be documented. See

    I would like to see a documented REST listener for Impact at least with the same functionality as the Webservice listener to start policies with parameters and get back resultstatus and other values. This would be very interesting not only for MWM policies.
