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.
We are moving our on premise SAP ECC installations to SAP S4/HANA on GCP off-premise. The GCP integrations are requiring SNC (secure socket) as well as certificates via the X509CERT field for security purposes.
These fields are not supported in the existing ITX 10.0x JALE adapter, but are available in the saprfc.ini file that can be references with the -d (destination) adapter command. Using this we have been able to send and receive non-SNC data with the on premise SAP ECC. In order to test the SNC components, we need support of the X509CERT field from the saprfc.ini specification. According to support this will be an enhancement.
Given the move of many customer installations to the cloud as well as hard requirement for secure transactions, this is very much as needed feature to maintain the product.
