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.

Solve Security issue user creditionals management console on ITX version 10

When you configure the management console on a Linux host (probably also on Windows) to connect to a launcher, You are required to configure the network connection to the launcher and the username and password to logon.

This configuration is stored on a general location ($DTX_HOME_DIR/mgmtconsole.bin) and will be used by every user who wanted to use the management console on that host.

The action is to prevent users from using the same creditionals!

To resolve this, you must currently install the runtime and monitoring software for each user at a new location and ensure that other users cannot use it. I don't think this is the solution to implement authentication and authorisation.

Can you create a better solution? For example use a webgui, where you have to logon using LDAP(S) for authentication and autorisation.
