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.

Remove SEAS dependecny for Control Center to authenticate to Active Directory/LDAP

Will avoid another product dependency to AD/LDAP authentication and this also saves another platform that includes server resources.

Once this idea is implemented, customers does not need to maintain another servers for SEAS and resources to maintain SEAS.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    SEAS is our strategic advanced authentication component common across IBM Sterling products so that we can deliver advanced capabilities around aunthentication like SAML 2.0 support etc. That is the reason we do not want to implement it natively however in future if this becomes a common interest from other customers (based on the votes) we will reconsider this.

    In 12 months, you will receive a notification that you can resubmit this request for consideration.

    Thanks, VIjay

    Hi Vijay Chougule

    what is the reason for NOT fixing the issue?


    Thanks,
