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.

Secure the Wire Listener: Stop requiring clear text passwords

Currently, the only way to secure the wire listener is to put clear text passwords in the jsonListener.properties file. This is true both for the JDBC connection to the database and for the SSL keystore. There needs to be a way to keep those clear-text passwords out of that file, using stashed passwords for SSL and/or onpassword for the JDBC connection.

    Thanks for the input! The recommended usage is to use the trusted local connection and not put username or passworrd in the file.
