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.

Make fields with regard to password expiry customizable



These values are set to very high values by default and cannot be customized in our cloud instance. We'd like to see this changed. It's a dedicated instance of PEM for us in the cloud, yet we cannot get the values we'd like. We'd also like to see a possibility of getting not just days for the FORGOT_PASSWORD_EXPIRY_DURATION_DAYS to be available in hours. The product manager would like to see both parameters set to one hour.

How will this idea be used?

A user forgets their password and has 30 days to use the link to reset it. Or someone you don't want getting the link gets it has plenty of time to use it and get in unauthorized (potentially). They would also need a security question.

A user needs a password reset (change) and is given 24 hours to change it. We'd like it to be 1 hour. We feel 24 hours is too long.
