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.
B2B Integrator 6.0.1 provides an adapter for AWS S3. This adapter requires the use of AWS access keys (awss3.accesskey & awss3.secretkey) for access to S3 buckets. This is not a practical approach for automated batch processes since the AWS access keys require regular rotation.
For the case of running B2Bi on AWS EC2 virtual machines, the AWS recommended pattern would be to use AWS EC2 instance profiles to provide the credentials needed to access S3 buckets. Please see the following links from Amazon:
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-java/v1/developer-guide/java-dg-roles.html (see option 4 in the list at the top of the page).
The default constructor in the AWS SDK already supports searching for credentials from the instance profile.

How will this idea be used?
To enable file transfers between internal business systems running in the AWS cloud and external partners it is necessary for automated processes to be able to read and write files from/to AWS S3 buckets, without any requirement for manual updating of access keys or complex home-grown processing to rotate access keys.
