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.

OMS SMA property management support for multi Cognos URL (QA & Prod)

OMoC offers cognos capability for OMS clients. There are two cognos URLs for qa and prod respectively.  These URLs are required to be configured in customer_overrides.properties of OMS. SMA doesn't allow to configure these lengthy cognos URLs in property management. This forces us to maintain 2 versions of customer_overrides. In OMoC we moved towards one version of customer_overrides approach which better works for self service tool. The request is to allow support configuring Cognos URL in SMA.

Alternatively we are able to directly access cognos by bookmarking the URL and without going through SBC and launch BI. But this direct access enforces to enter tenantID manually apart from user/password. It is easy for a reporting user to type OMS user/password on cognos screen but remembering tenantID is not common. Please enhance the cognos to accept a URL that will take both tenantID so if bookmarked, the users need to enter only user/password.
