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.

LDAP for MC - Support authentication through sAMAccountName and for MS ActiveDirectory DC as LDAP Server

In our environment we typically login to Active Directory with our sAMAccountName. By default the LDAP.properties file has authUserIDAttribute as CN but the CN does not look like our usual username (or sAMAccountName). As of now sAMAccountName is not supported for configuring LDAP on CDC's Management Console. Also MS ActiveDirectory domain controller as LDAP server and use of DC principals should be supported. Enhancement will help minimize risk of security vulnerabilities to our management console and only allow certain users to access it. This will also allow us to use what we already have in place for LDAP server. Our work around is that we are currently on a older version of Management Console without LDAP configuration. But we are working on upgrading Management Console and access server to the latest version and also configure LDAP.

    I'd be glad if this RFE could be implemented. Also in our case, we need the LDAP authentication to use GSS-API.
