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.

CDW services should be running as non-system and non-admin user account

Our security assessment team found an issue with 'System' running CDW services by default. Although IBM allows a service account to run CDW services, it requires this account to be a member of local admin group. Either method causes security concern since CDW lists on a port and hackers could exploit it and gain the same privileges of the account that runs the CDW service.

The requirement is to allow a non-privileged account to run the CDW services without requiring it being a member of the local admin group.
Please bring this PMR to your L3 engineering team and add it to the
roadmap for a future release.

Thanks,
Dan
