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.

System Certificate Name Update - Global Update to Adapters/CD Nodes

When editing a System Certificate under B2B console > Trading Partner > Digital Certificate > System > (Your System Cert) > "Edit Name or Usage of existing Certificate"... You aren't able to make that name change globally. So your CD nodes will fail and all adapters that were using that name.

What should happen is when you make that name change it should change it to the updated name anywhere that name was before. So to make an actual system cert name change you have to update every instance where the name is.. So in my case I would need to touch every environment where that system cert was which is in 150-200+ configurations manually.

I was told this was not something IBM was set up to with File Gateway.

How will this idea be used?

In my case.. an admin before my time labeled the system cert as <systemcert>-2017 on all environments and then all of the nodes were created. But when renewal time came up it was kind of confusing seeing a date that would stay the same throughout and we would just update the cert itself.

So I attempted to just drop the 2017 from the name field. This just broke SFG so no connections could be made to any of the CD nodes or adapters.
