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 the requirement for a keystore password when running a silent upgrade

A manual upgrade does not require a keystore password, but a silent upgrade does.  Removing the need for this keystore password would simplify the silent upgrade process and be more secure.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us.  I reviewed it with my development team and it appears that a defect has been created to resolve this issue.  The defect number for this is MFT-10047 and our developers will provide that fix to you when the issue has been corrected.  Because this isn't technically an enhancement request I'll close this request out as being a defect, but please don't hesitate to use this tool again if you think of changes that we could consider.
