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.

Reporting available for Secure+ data within Connect Direct 4.1x and 4.2x

I am being tasked with providing numbers on a monthly basis on how many remote nodes I have configured for Secure+ on each of my supported servers. I need to be able to detect in the nodes subdirectory which of the nodes are set up for Secure+ by some kind of visual confirmation, or something that I can trigger on in a script that goes and gathers the information. Currently, the only way I can find out which nodes are set up for Secure+ is to go into either the spadmin.sh or the spcli.sh tools and visually inspect each node, and manually write down which nodes are set up for Secure+. This is untenable because I'm being asked for updates to this information on a monthly basis.

    Thank you for your patience as we've progressed with the enhancement request backlog for Connect:Direct. Unfortunately after additional consideration we believe that the decision on this request must be changed and that it will not be considered for inclusion into Connect:Direct moving forward. We believe that this request would be better served through IBM Control Center as it has reports that can be used to easily gather this information.

    Sincerely,

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that it would be beneficial for Connect:Direct to provide a better way to track various configuration settings across an entire C:D environment.  I have accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will work to move it to the roadmap moving into the future.


    Sincerely,
