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.

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.

Allow CPD Admin to list all "Connection" objects and check whether tha connection is using Personal or Shared Credential

CPD allows user to create connection with Personal or Shared credential. By the default, the option is default to Shared Credential.

Almost enterprise organization prevent their user to use shared credential, so there is a requirement to allow CPD Admin to check whether user accidentally created connection with shared credential.

This idea is requesting a new feature to allow CPD Admin to list all "Connection" objects and check whether that connection is using Personal or Shared Credential.

    We're working on a solution to disable "Shared credentials' capability. This should be part of the future release of the product.

    Please confirm that it would meet your enterprise requirements. As of now, we're not considering exposing what you're asking for, as a proposed user experience, but would rather allow removing the use of this functionality.

    Thank you for submitting this idea.

    We're considering this feature in future releases of the product. However, right now, we're considering to enable/disable "shared" credentials for Platform connections only.

    Can you please confirm that this idea refers to those connections only, or if we should also consider this as a setting for connections created in a project or catalog.

    Thanks !
