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.

CDWebServices to allow separate WebInterface and RestAPI installations

Allow more individualized and specialized architecture implementations of CDWS by making separate component (or making them selectable/optional) installations for both the Web interface and the RestAPI components.
Look into including the RestAPI's as an optional component/add-on of CDW and CDU installations as well.

How will this idea be used?

Allow CDWebServices installation components (Web Interface/RestAPI) to be installed separately so that organizations can implement different architecture strategies for the two primary functions included within CDWS.

Our tentative architecture plan is to have one instance of the CD Web Interface installed with our SCC instance as a replacement of the CDBrowser, once that interface is deprecated.

CD users/teams would migrate to use that centralized web interface and utilize it similar to how they are currently using CDBrowser today. (Processes/stats checking/etc).

The RestAPI would be installed separately on servers, and used as a replacement to the SDK/JAI instances that are currently in-use. Or would be installed separately for net-new installations where the teams require that functionality.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that your request to allow more customizable CDWS installations would be valuable. We will accept this enhancement request as and will look to place this item on the roadmap moving forward.
