Is CA SSO/SiteMinder supporting Oracle to MySQL Links?

We have created a LINK from Oracle Database to MySQL DB, and when using the link, if we execute any query on Oracle, we get a valid response from MySQL. The queries are similar to:
SELECT "name" from
"v_sec_check_sys_user"@TEST_MYSQL_LINK where

TEST_MYSQL_LINK is a link created on Oracle which sends the request to MYSQL.
But if we try to use the same query in Policy Server, we get the error "Optional feature not implemented."

We want to know if this is supported in any of the latest version.


Policy Server R12.52 SP1 Build 499 on RedHat Linux
