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.

Support for Oracle Advanced Security Option and Infosphere Information Server

This request is to establish a clear definition on what is supported with Oracle Advanced Security Option (OAS) and InfoSphere Information Server. Network level encryption is now available to all Oracle environments to use freely to have secure communication from any client to the database. We have migrated to Oracle 12c and have defaulted to use network encryption for every installation but when trying to change the repository from Oracle 11g to 12c with network encryption, IIS failed to function even with updated policy jar files needed for AES256. The IBM support site indicates that OAS is supported but after 35 days of troubleshooting, it was confirmed that it was not supported. As a result of this, we are now forced to segragate the database environments for IIS due to it's inability to work with encryped communication. Ideally i would like to have full support with OAS.

    Hi there.. I haven't heard any comments posted for this request..

    We are in similar situation where we need to establish TLS1.2 connectivity with Oracle v19c for ISv11.7.1.1. From PMR we were asked to have native network encryption with similar updated policy.jar file which isn't standard from my org. Its has to be TLS1.2. hence looking for an update if we can have latest security enhancement with metadata repository
