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.

Password less and password based authentication

Problem: We have trading partners using one CDNode that may have a
CDProcess using either snodeid=(id,password) or snodeid=(id) or no
snodeID. When a snodeid=(id,password) is sent, we use SEAS going
to a Directory Server. The backend server is B2Bi and we would like
to use a single adapter that can use a CD Policy that can handle each
case for an incoming node.

Resolution: I believe the SFTP Policy is a good example of how this can
be done. With SFTP, you can use "PASSWORD or KEY", In CD, I
would like to have something that can do the same like interpretation
when a process is submitted and use either "EA or PassThru" or allow
EA to not require a password. The first option will allow a incoming
connection touse SEAS or fallback to CD Native and passthru
Authentication that does not require a snodeid and password but it could
just have a snodeid only. The second option may allow SEAS to control
this behavior in some way.
