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.

CoC 19.1 SBC extensibility workbench opened in Firefox 60.x forces installation of jsLib that is incompatible with Firefox 60.x

Environment Info 


CoC 19.1 devtoolkit

Problem Statement 

When following the documented CoC instructions to enable extensibiility workbench for SBC at the following link, trying to use Firefox 60.x forces the installation of jsLib add-on that is incompatible with it:

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGTJF/com.ibm.help.omcloud.custom.doc/customization/c_omc_custuioverview.html

Simulation Steps 

1. Build sbcdev as per instruction in KC at above link. I have already built it and deployed it so you can access it using http://moonbase03.rtp.raleigh.ibm.com:9080/sbcdev/sbcdev/login.do with username/password of admin/password
2. Log into sbcdev using latest Firefox (60.x in my case)
3. Hit Shift+Space to enable extensibility workbench
4. Dialog box appears saying that jsLib has to be downloaded and installed into Firefox
5. Attempt to install jsLib into Firefox. Attached error screenshot occurs.

Supporting Documentation/Asset Location

Expected Behavior 

Either a compatible version of the jsLib should be made available or some other similar functionality in Firefox should be used.

Business Impact

Documentation in KC is false and misleading that sbcdev can be used with CoC using Firefox
