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.

Modify Api security on an user group multiple times

Based on the PMR I raised regarding api permission I got to know that the below are the steps to enable api security on an user group.

Got this from PMR********* 

In order to modify the API permissions of a user group, you can follow these steps:

-Navigate to the user group section from the Application Console (Application Platform->Security->Groups)

-Single click on the user group you wish to modify

-In the top right corner, select Save As...

-Give the group a new Group ID

-Click Save in the top right corner

-API Security permissions will now be able to be modified.


When the user group is saved, the user group will now have the specified permissions. The permissions can be further modified by repeating the same process.


Looks like in order to change the permission we have to again do a save as and copy the same data to a new user group and add additional permissions required. This would lead to multiple new user group creation which we would not prefer and it would be easy if the user group name is same as we are in still development phase and the requirements keep on changing. Please let me know if this can be done.

How will this idea be used?

Currently we are in development phase so we won't to create user group multiple times if this is implemented.
