IBM Sterling Ideas

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.

Have the User ID in SB2Bi / SFG / MyFG case-insensitive

Currently the User Id information of a SB2Bi / SFG / MyFG User is case-sensitive. This means that when creating the user with myUserId as the UserID, the authentication will only be possible by entering myUserId (and not myuserid or MYUSERID which will result in an authentication error), and this although for a User setup with external authentication using e.g. a LDAP server the userId is case-insensitive.

Actually the error occurs before the authentication because SI cannot find the user in its DB.

Change Requester: Add a property that enables the login to SB2Bi / SFG / MyFG in a case-insensitive mode.

    Agree with need for this. We have multiple trading partners who are having trouble with case-sensitivity on account names in SFG/B2BI.
