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.

Allow Pass-Through User Mapping option for " Password Or Key " Authentication Method in SFTP policies

We want to be able to select on the secure proxy configuration manager on SFTP policies the User Mapping option " Pass-Through " when the required Authentication Method selected is " Password Or Key ". This option is available for " Password ", " Password AND Key" but not for " Password Or Key "

What is your industry? Automotive
How will this idea be used?

This will be use to allow Secure Proxy to redirect credentials as it's already done for " Password " and " Password AND Key " authentication Method to the outbound node.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas. During our review of this enhancement request we thought some more backgorund would help us to understand this better. Since the Pass-through can be only possible via Password, how would the "Password OR Key" help in your use case?

    Thank you for bringing your ideas to us. If you have any additional feedback, thoughts or ideas, or if there is anything else I can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation. Appreciate your patience.

    Thanks,

    Product Management
