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.

Salesforce Plugin Authentication Enhancement

Update 6/23 -

Main question for Aha is on NTLM Authentication support for Salesforce connector.

See below for more details from Dayo Nelson (images attached):

We currently use Salesforce plugin stage with proxy and no proxy ID and password. The proxy rule is set to bypass authentication. This is working fine. Now we are trying to enable proxy authentication. We updated the proxy rule to use authentication and passing proxy ID and password. This is not working. The proxy log shows that ID/password is not being sent by DataStage.
