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.

Security Exit must be usable by different SFTs and the STCname should be part of the RACF profile namess

In our environment we run several Connect:Direct stc's in one environment.

The provided Security Exits do not offer a possibility to setup separate profiles for these stc's.
We would like this to be changed.

Second what we ask for is to add the STCname to the RACF profiles so that anyone can find the Connect:Direct profiles based on, part of, their names .

How will this idea be used?

We can setup different security settings for each Connect:Direct stc.

    Good morning Chris ,

    I am a bit disappointed in your (re)action, I was on holiday for a few weeks and on my return last Monday, I was confronted with some production issues.
    After that I started handling my mail and found yours yesterday.
    I wanted to try and create an answer for you today but that is no longer needed.

    With kind regards Erik Dijkerman

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I reviewed it with my team, but we didn't quite understand the request. We reached out looking for additional detail, but unfortunately didn't receive a response. Because of that I must assume this enhancement is no longer needed and I will need to decline the request. Please don't hesitate to open a new RFE if you could share additional information or have new enhancements we should consider however.
