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.

Hide password arguments which is invoked in instance of dsidocsvr

We need to fix the issue: Passwords are visible on operation system level when the process is running ( command uses the password as parameter ). Thanks

For example:

dsad1er  2359796        1   0   May 03      - 38:49 dsidocsvr UVHOME=/opt/IBM/InformationServer115/Server/DSEngine ENABLESNCGUI=FALSE USEDEFAULTILOADDIR=TRUE DSPASSWORD=:!-:(hQlJ,0cb`o1E6H45?)6XWFTT RFCSERVERCOUNT=1 SAPROUTERSTRING= ACKNOWLEDGEIDOCRECEIPT=TRUE DEFAULTLANGUAGE=EN DATAFILESPATH= SNCLIBGUI= SNCQOPRUNTIME= SNCMYNAMERUNTIME= SNCX509RUNTIME=FALSE PASSWORDFILE= SAPSYSNUM=00 SNCMYNAMEGUI= DEFAULTUSERNAME=ZURDF_CPIC DESCRIPTION=IP0I100BRS SNCXCERTRUNTIME= SAPGROUP= IDOCLOGBUFFERSIZE=0 SNCQOPGUI= SNCUSERUNTIMEPARAMETERS=FALSE DSUSERNAME=AVHGDJ744@nomail.relay.ibm.com METADATAFILE= SAPMESSERVER= AUTOCLEARIDOCLOG=FALSE SNCPARTNERNAMERUNTIME= ILOADPARTNERNUMBER=KRDXACTA02 IDOCPORTVERSION=3 DEFAULTCLIENT=100 SNCPARTNERNAMEGUI= READMETADATAFROMFILE=FALSE ALLOWSAPTORUNJOBS=TRUE SAPAPPSERVER=ip0db.pok.ibm.com ENABLESNCRUNTIME=FALSE LISTENFORIDOCS=TRUE NAME=IP0I100BRS SNCXCERTGUI= ISDOMAINNAME=ibmkp1er.portsmouth.uk.ibm.com:82 SNCX509GUI=FALSE DEFAULTILOADDIR= MSGSVRROUTERSTRING= SAPSYSID= REFSERVERPROGID=actarw SNCLIBRUNTIME= ILOADDESTPARTNERNUMBER=IP0I100BRS DSSERVERNAME=IBMKP1ER USELOADBALANCING=FALSE DEFAULTPASSWORD=:!-;$TsqFB`|@@m|TP7v5?)6XWFTT

As you can see the password is opentext in the process ,Encrypted password can be cracked as well, it is not compliant with IBM password policy.
