Shape the future of IBM!
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Post your ideas
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notifications on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Hello, Today on unix, mainframe or windows the number of alternate ip addresses that we may enter in a netmap definition is unlimited. On HP Nonstop (not HP-UX), we are limited to 3 hostnames or ip addresses (the documentation says: IPADDR=ip.addr...
Group system in userfile.cfg (UNIX)
In an environment with hundreds of users defined in the same userfile.cfg, it would be nice to be able to govern them through a system of groups or profiles to reduce administration time and avoid unnecessary failures.
Tool to monitor cert expiry
We want to put an alerting mechanism to monitor cert expire so we can proactively plan.
File Agent Rule Definition Panel: Capability to use the same arguments in the "process name" field as in "process arguments"
We would like to create a very dynamic approach for the definition of file agent rules using the "monitor subdirecctory feature" and a model for subdirectory structures containing the cdp process file name.
Integrate iKeyman with Connect Direct Web Services
IBM Control Center and IBM Connect Direct Secure + both have iKeyman integrated/included with the product. Why isn't this the case for Connect Direct Web Services?
Group Functional Authorities in Connect Direct UNIX
In Connect Direct Windows, a local or domain group functional authority can be created. However, a similar functionality is not available in CD UNIX.
Configurable clean environment for run tasks
Following the change introduced in v188.8.131.52 of C:D for UNIX (apar IC86881) whereby environment variables are sanitized, IBM should provide a better mechanism for setting environment variables for Run Task and Run Job steps in a secure manner. Alth...
We require that the SMTP connection used for notification, to be retried in the event the SMTP server is down. This could be retried x times prior to giving up. Also would it be possible to specify a secondary SMTP server in the event the primary ...
add HELP icon to the Sterling Connect:Direct applications that will direct the customer directly to the Support Request tool
support vets many customer complaints about the IBM.com website. If we add some direct links into the products the customer uses, like a SUPPORT TICKET link to the SR tool, this defuses customer hostility to the web site.
automated cddef.bin creation via lcu.bat by passing positional paramters
I want to create cddef.bin automatically via script. Thus I want to pass all values to lcu.bat via positional paramters rather than interactively. e.g. lcu.bat %NODENAME% %IPADDRESS% 1363 %CD_UID% %CD_PWD% %CD_PWD%
