IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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 with SSO combining multiple ID field types #cpfieldcsm

Bank of America uses LDAP with SSO. They were trying to use user search field as mail, but could not. The support case tech SME responded:


Anytime an ID is used, you can not combine multiple ids as it will not serve the purpose.

By default it uses only one type of id, For example, cn, uid, or sAMAccountName.


The bank would like to persue having this capability enabled.


See case for details:

    BofA engineer Manoj Jain responds to the two questions:

    1. Do you want users to be able to log in with an email and a username, or just email?

    Email id for users to be able to login with SSO.

    And a username too, so we can login with the service ID account (as service ID account doesn’t have email ID associated with it).

    2. Can you give more details?
    CPD 4.0.2 is SSO enabled and in LDAP configuration we are using "user search field" as mail. And in this case, we are not able to login to CPD with service ID when sso enabled.

    Also "user search field" , we tried both- mail or sAMAccountName

    With mail, we are not able to login with service ID as it gets authenticated with email addresses and our service ids are not associated with email address.

    When we tried sAMAccountName, service ids are getting logged in but non-service IDs (employee IDs) are not getting authenticated as non-services IDs are using email address as username.

    From customer/Burt:

    Yes, it should be both.
    Email id for users to be able to login with sso. And a username too, so we can login with the service ID account (as service ID account doesn't have email ID associated with it).

    Hi Burt,

    Do you want users to be able to log in with an email and a username, or just email? Can you give me more details?
