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.

SCC should secure Cognos using the same certificates as the SCC application by default

The integrated Cognos instance in SCC should be secured using the same certificate stores as the SCC application itself. I should not use a CAMUSER certificate signed by CA as the default when SCC has been secured using private certificates. This creates a mismatch between the components and in the case where the customer operating environment is locked down, the certificates cannot be installed to the browser and all customization interfaces in Cognos will fail to launch when the Cognos is secured.

    Starting Control Center 6.2, we are have replaced Cognos as our default reporting engine, with native reporting engine, this idea appears to be not necessary.

    Entirely agree, ICC HTTPS support is almost entirely unusable due to this issue. Self-signed certificates cannot be accepted by even mildly locked down modern browsers. I've raised this as a case previously.
