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.

Show the name instead of username


We are using SSO as our primary authentication for the CP4D project. Our SSO is configured to authenticate with something we call NISS (this in our business is considered confidential information ). Still, when using this ID as authentication, It is seen publicly as the Username in the platform (seen in user management and WSL permission WKC permission assignment). We want to request a feature to separate the SSO authenticate ID and the Username displayed in the platform.

In Catalogs, the Name is displayed as we pretend here to be all over the platform. It's easier to identify to who an asset belongs if we see the person's name instead of a code ( being it confidential or not )

Kind regards,

    This ticket as a feature would be quite disruptive and there arent any customer who have reported this requirement due to limitation on the Idp. However, We would work with you to resolve this issue by looking at few other options and workaround.
