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.

Connect Direct UNIX: Connect Direct Agent stopAgent.sh

Currently root or a user that has sudo access is the only way that the stopAgent.sh can be executed.  This needs to be changed so that the installer can stop the Agent without having sudo or root access.

The installer for Connect Direct UNIX needs to be able to run the stopAgent.sh without having root or sudo access.

    Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe we can make improvements in options to allow or disable the C:D Agent. I will accept this enhancement request, to focus on making improvements, but the actual design may differ from what you've specifically requested. Thank you very much for using the enhancement request tool and if you uncover other ideas that we should consider please do let us know.

    Thanks,

    Chris Sanders
