    Hi Adam, about the OpenID authentication this is available already from V9.5.0.1, while the remote CLI will be available only on V10.1.

    Marco, apologies I missed this.
    OpenID is now acceptable for authentication. What versions would this be available at? Also, would the CLI be retrofitted into 9.5?

    Hello Adam, would it be acceptable for you to use OpenId for authentication with DWC, rather than SAML2.0?

    The remote CLI is currently in our roadmap as feature to be released on top of V10.1 by end of 2022.
