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.

Upgrade Create/Update Community API to Include Setting of PGP Decryption and Signing Keys

When setting up PGP decryption for inbound files, being able to set the PGP Decryption key when creating the community is minimum requirement when automating partner onboarding. The Create/Update Community APIs should be enhanced to include both the PGP Decryption and PGP Signing Key fields.

How will this idea be used?

This will be used to further automate the onboarding process through PEM. The true value add for PEM is only realized when all manual steps are removed from the process. Since the Create Community API does not allow the setting the PGP decryption key, an admin user will have to log in to set the key. This can allow people to forget do it and cause timely issues in testing, reducing PEM's value.

    The Create community API should be enhanced to allow to set PGP signing and decryption key fields as it will be used to automate our process.
