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

Post 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 product management 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 notification 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.

FAP - Password Encryption


at our client Atlantic Group d.d. during upgrade of PA,CA,CC client set request to eliminate all hardcoded passwords on any file on all models. We successfully eliminated them by using inbuilt encryption (e.g. in PA) or if password was in .bat files by using PowerShell encryption etc. Nevertheless, in CC model we came across on file FAP (pls. find attached) where password is hardcoded in order to FAP (Financial Analysis Publisher) to work.

Enhancement request:

Add possibility to encrypt this password since FAP is basically configuration file and not file created from developer side during CC model development.
