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.

Better way to extract user info related to users setup under Functional Authorities to show their level of access in easily view able report for AUDIT reasons

For PCI Audits we have to confirm user info on who has access to our C:D in Functional Authorities and what their level of access is GENUSR or ADMIN, currently the export user config dumps all this info for users in Functional Authorities as well as proxies in one long report with no way to easily compare who is general user and who has admin access. We find it clunky and we have to manually remove proxy users to provide report for internal users setup under Functional Authorities and there is no easy compare to say GENUSR or ADMIN.

How will this idea be used?

As an application owner I need to provide quarterly reviews of user access to our C:D environment and an easily exportable functional authorities report with just users and their access level under functional authorities that we could pull from C:D Requester and not have to be on the actual C:D Server to export user config that is not very user friendly in terms of comparing user access in addition to it dumps all proxy users setup as well.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team.  Unfortunately I will not be able to accept this request as these capabilities are already available in IBM Control Center (CC).  CC is the governance and visibility solution for the IBM MFT portfolio and is targeted directly for these types of use cases.  If you are not familiar you may want to reach out to your sales rep to ask for some details.  Thank you for using this request tool and please don't hesitate to use it again if you think of other ideas we should consider.
