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.
Some sites still require Implicit SSL due to business pressure

Control logging of SSP CM monitoring messages
Messages are written to the auditlog.xml file (ACPT037I, ACPT040I and ACPT038I), as well as the sspengine.log file for the same activity.It is possible to reduce the frequency of these messages, but only to once every 10 minutes.It would be great ...
Update Adapter log in SSP 6000 just as SSP343
To identify the IP or Subnet to be whitelisted.
There is a difference in the way the IP/DNS are getting logged in the Adapter logs in SSP 6000 than SSP 343. This has become an issue as we are not able to differentiate between a...
Increase the Secure Proxy Alternate Destinations list from 3 to N+ (7 or more)
Our customers have multiple sites that host their CD endpoints and are connected through SSP. We would like the number of Destination Addresses in the CD Netmap configuration increased to support a larger number of alternate addresses. Based on ...
Secure Proxy to Provide Optional URI Support
On an SSP HTTP Reverse Proxy, allow optional configuration of a URI, so that traffic can be routed to multiple destinations. The mechanism would allow the adapter to listen on a single port, but then based on URI in the HTTP request, could route ...
