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.

IP + User_Id whitelisting

SSP supports IP or User_Id whitelisting only but not a combo ( IP + User_id). We need to ability to whitelist IPs for a given User_id. This way, if a rouge employee left the firm but carries the user_id credential, he can't login from other location. This is a new security requirement some of our clients are demanding. Please treat this as urgent critical feature to be rollout in near future release.

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

We want to whitelist IPs + User_Id together as a set of rules in SSP. If a user_id comes in with different IP, this user can't connect or blocked.

Ideally, this rule can be set at protocol level so we don't have to update each adapter.

    Thanks for submitting an enhancement request. We would review it further to address this in one of the future releases.
