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.

Add REST API, or some way to retrieve config details outside of the UI

For auditing purposes we have to regularly pull a list of users from all of our applications along with their permission level / role, and last login information.  For SEAS this process currently requires logging into the UI and manually copying the information from the users/roles screens into a separate spreadsheet.  This manual process is error-prone and time consuming.  It would be much easier and more reliable to have an API, or at a minimum some way to export the app configuration from the command line.

How will this idea be used?

1. External job will be created to export admin user details from SEAS either via API or commandline utility for further processing by our auditing/compliance processes.

2. Authentication config from GUI can also be exported for re-use in other environments, or to automatically review security requriements / configuration without manually logging into each SEAS UI.
