Activation of ICC4SAP-Plugin for ICN only in desktops where really needed

Current situation is:

If we want to use the ICC4SAP-Plugin in a specific administrative ICN desktop there is a need of enabling the ICC4SAP-plugin in another desktop (the one that is defined as default desktop) in order make the plugin work correctly.

There is an old technote (https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/export-configuration-ini-file-fails-when-default-ibm-content-navigator-desktop-has-ibm-sap-plug-disabled)

related to this problem for ICN 2.0.3 / ICC 4.0.0.1 that describes the workaround. It seems like the workaround is still the same as we are using most current versions and still have the problem. From out point of view this can't be a wanted behaviour as it is totally against the design concept of ICN where plugins should be only enabled in the desktops where they are used. Additionally we don't want to enable unneeded plugins for performance reasons and to avoid side effects.


We would really appreciate if the ICC4SAP-plugin would follow the general design concepts of ICN and behaves in a way that it needs to be enabled only in desktops where it is used.
