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.

Configuring the SEAS to only respond with (UserID & Destination Indicator) in response to SSP and forward the Authentication request (Password/SSH Key) aganist/to Sterling integrator local store?

The process/flow will follow the below steps from (User to SSP to SEAS to SI)

Step 1 - User Authentication request comes from SSP layer to SEAS;

Step 2 - SEAS validates the user against connected AD and return only "UserID/Username && Destination Indicator (Cloud/On-Premise)" values to SSP

Step 3 - SSP then route the user connection to the destination Sterling Integrator

Step 4 - Destination Sterling Integrator (Cloud/On-Premise) will validate the Authentication of the User based on "Password/SSH Key" against it's local store

    In a world where every organization is operating (and will be operating) in a hybrid cloud model, this makes a lot of sense to have as a capability in SSP/SEAS. While we have heard a lot about dynamic routing capabilities of SSP, many customers may not have been able to take advantage of those capabilities because of its dependencies on SAEA/AD and the complex architecture it brings into supporting it.
