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.

Hooks to enable the SSO Authentication for SSPDashboard URL

What is your industry? Aerospace & Defense
How will this idea be used?

These days many enterprise organizations are required to have a single authentication and authorization scheme to manage/access various web applications, this gives the flexibility to the enterprise to change the authentication scheme at one place to meet the ever-changing security requirements without affecting the bunch of applications. While this is the current trend, we don't have a provision to configure/accept SSO from different SSO providers for SSP Dashboard URL. Adding this functionality aligns the SSP Dashboard URL to meet the security requirements.

    Hi Vijay,


    The purpose of this RFE is different from what has been delivered in SSP & SEAS 6.0 version. This RFE is opened to provide hooks to enable the SSO for the Configuration Manager Dashboard URL. Please let me know if you need any additional details on this topic.

    Ability to support external identity providers based on SAML 2.0 prorocol has been implemented and delivered in IBM Secure Proxy 6.0 release. Hence close the idea request.

    Hi, As we are considering this enhancement for our next release, we plan to support SSO authentication per SAML specifications. I would like to know your preferred SSO provider so that we can plan to validate our implementation against. Could you please provide your inputs? Thanks,
