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.

SSP CM : Alternate JMS Connection Info under JMS Queue Management in Advanced - System Settings - CMSystemSettings - Globals

Sterling Secure Proxy Configuration Manager


Hello Team,


Even though there is option to have multiple JMS Configuration under CMSystemSettings, at a time only one JMS configuration can be set in JMS Queue Management to enable JMS queuing for CM. There is no option for Alternate JMS Configuration.


If in case the JMS queue selected in JMS Connection info is down, then once has to manual change this config to the working JMS Configuration. Having an alternate JMS Connection Info, will help to avoid this manual change.


The ask is similar to the option that is already available for External Authentication Servers (Advanced -> External Authentication Servers -> Advanced)
