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.

Suppress password policy error messages from SEAS logs if using Ping for Active Directory.

ERROR LdapPasswordPolicyRetriever - ************** Uknown or unsupported LDAP server detected

We use Ping for our Active Directory solution and it was determined that Ping does not return the password policy to SEAS as expected. Therefore, this error is thrown to the logs every time a customer connects to our B2Bi/SFG application. That means that there are tens of thousands of this message in our seas logs on a daily basis. We would like a way to suppress this message from showing up in the logs.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    We reviwed this with L3 and Development team and here is our recommendation.

    If SEAS does not support the back end LDAP server change password feature, , then update the Change Password Settings of the SEAS profile, uncheck the "Profile can be used to change password". This should supress the error message. Please let us know if this does not help.


    Thanks,
