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.

Requesting ability to replace certificate used for Admin UI connection to z/OS

We would like a feature added to the installation of IDAA on z /OS which allows us to provide a certificate for the Admin UI interface to z/OS. Currently during installation, when logging into the Appliance Installer, a message appears indicating a certificate is not trusted because it was not signed or known by the customer domain. An Add Exception option allows you to proceed with the installation but our UI Admin connections are being flagged with a Qualys rating of HIGH which requires immediate remediation. Our options are to create an exception for the certificate supplied by IBM which is a difficult sell and it will eventually expire which will mandate a replacement.

We need an option which allows us to supply a signed certificate valid for our company at the time of the installation which would be stored and used within the container for the UI Admin SSL connection.

Based on current compliance and regulatory guidelines, the lack of such a feature is a show stopper for us and honestly we are very surprised that is not the case for most customers in today's environment.
