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.

Functionality to test profiles

We need some method to test a configured SEAS engine before integrating it with the rest of our environment.  Currently we can only test it by pointing SSP to the new engine and attempting to log in.  This means that we can't test the SEAS config in isolation, and if anything fails we have to check multiple components to confirm whether the failure was because of SEAS or something else.

It would be ideal to have some method (either a script or a webservice/API) we could use to pass a username and password/ssh key to that would let us test our configured profiles directly through SEAS

How will this idea be used?

As a Sterling administrator i need to be able to properly test new SEAS engines before integrating them with the rest of our Sterling environment.  We need to be able to provide credentials directly to SEAS using a webservice or script and test our authentication profiles directly to confirm their proper functionality.
