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.

Partner Registration Approval should trigger an action

The Partner Registration Approval should trigger an action to perform user customized actions like Rest API to push the partner details to customer LDAP or customer custom tables for auditing or other purposes.

As SSO implementation is getting introduced , LDAP is the first point of entry means the Partner details are already present in LDAP. If PEM is becoming first point of entry then we follow the regular registration process and upon clicking the Approve button will invoke API to push the details to customer LDAP systems.


We need to provide an option for customization for Partner registration / approval process.

    We will consider this as part of our continual plans for SSO. With SSO, we still intend to rely on SSP and SEAS to help to with communication with LDAP. As we build out those requirements, we will continue to research this for its feasibility and if possible, will move foward.
