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.
Ability to Connect from Datastage to Salesforce using SAML Transaction (Federated Authentication)
We are looking for an ability in Salesforce Connector Stage to Connect from Datastage to Salesforce using SAML Transaction (Federated Authentication).
Background: How Federated Authentication Works-
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) provides a secure, XML-based solution for exchanging user security information between an identity provider (MyCompany's Identity Store) and a service provider (Salesforce.com).
There are three roles involved in a SAML transaction: â€¢ an identity provider (the asserting party - (MyCompany's Identity Store) ), â€¢ a service provider (the relying party relying on the assertion â€“ Salesforce.com), and â€¢ a user (the subject of the assertion - Datastage).
The identity provider (MyCompany's Identity Store) is the authority system that provides the user information. The service provider (Salesforce.com) is the system, that trusts the identity provider's (MyCompany's Identity Store) user information, and uses the data to provide access to the service or application (Datastage).
