Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
The Informix (AVL) customer T-Systems/Deutsche Telekom AG requests transparent LDAP authentication for Informix.
Last year T-Systems/Deutsche Telekom AG replaced the complete HP-UX hardware for the application REBELL/Ironman by IBM Power AIX machines. One of the main reasons for choosing IBM hardware was their satisfaction with the Informix database server.
This IBM AIX environment is configured for using LDAP authentication, it works transparently for services Secure Shell (ssh) etc. To clarify if LDAP authentication works with Informix two PMRs were opened, PMR 69417.070.724 for Informix and PMR 00088.077.724 for AIX. Unfortunately it turned out a transparent LDAP authentication for IBM Informix does not work in customers environment.
This shortage is hardly to understand since IBM DB2 LUW supports transparent LDAP authentication since version 9.7 which was available in 2009. http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9r7/topic/com.ibm.db2.luw.admin.sec.doc/doc/c0050519.html
