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.

Concept of Certificate Grouping and Referring Group Directly Under Netmaps

In Today's world, when Client Authentication is Enabled in SSP, firstly we need to get the root and intermediate certs and check-in to the SSP and then choose the new certificates in the respective netmaps. The number of netmaps we need to make this change may vary depending on the impementation situation. Concept of Certificate Grouping and Referring Group Directly Under Netmaps will reduce the on-boarding time;

    Have you tried to create a master CA bundle to store all of the intermediate and roots? You could setup one truststore per environment or protocol and refer all netmap entries to that store so that you only have to maintain the one store.
