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.

Use Configuration Management with SCC to view available CD configuration without FULL CD access.

Using CDz (Mainframe Connect Direct) user with Operator Authority does not allow to view the available CD configuration using ICC - no 'Configure Server' option available in ICC.
The same user used through CD Browser or directly using NDM API allows to view the read-only NDM configuration.
The enhancement would allow to view the available configuration from NDM server in ICC even if the used Functional User does not have admin privileges over Connect Direct but it allows it directly when set up with read only access.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. This capability is included in newer versions of Control Center which allow granular control over user that have edit and view only access to C:D configurations. I've included a link below to our documentation where this is covered. If you have any questions about their use please don't hesitate to contact our support organization however.

    This is controllable based on the permissions granted to the functional authority of the user ID that Control Center uses with Connect Direct.
