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.

Ability to view Secure Proxy configurations via Control Center

When the Sterling Secure Proxy platform is connected, need to be able to view the connection information contained within the environment, similar to what is available for Connect:Direct connections. Being able to view the audit log for changes is insufficient access to the amount of data involved.

    I disagree with the indication that this 'already exists' in the product as the ability to run a report of the audit logs is not the same as being able to view the current configurations.

    Thanks Bruce, appreciate the input;

    Currently you can run an out-of-the-box report for SSP audit logs as per below link, which you can automate as well

    As this exists in the product via reports I will close this Idea, however will ensure we track this internally as we are planning for UX updates to make within ICC coming soon

    we are looking for the ability to see the configurations within secure proxy across all of our environments.  We're looking for the connection information configured between the servers involved similar to the netmap entries provided for Connect:Direct.  If the information is available and populated to the database, we could run queries as needed.  We are not using the any Cognos reports in our environment.


    Hope this helps

    Thank you for your submission.
    To better understand the ask, would you be able to specify what connection data you would like to see in the ICC UX, and the related report you are looking for?

    Thank you
