Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Enhance Identity Insight Explorer and i2 II plug-in to use the full Liberty authentication framework
THIS IS FOR IBM INFOSPHERE IDENTITY INSIGHT*****
We have deployed Identity Insight (II) v9, which uses IBM Liberty and supports the full Liberty framework for authentication. Our II Liberty implementation is configured to use an OpenIdConnect (OIDC) client for authentication with and OIDC server (Okta). This configuration is significant in that we have to conform with the State of New York's enterprise standard of OIDC with Okta. The NYS enterprise Okta ID provider solution uses the statewide LDAP directory. Administration of User IDs and Group IDs is centrally managed for all 65 agencies in the State with well established rules, policies and processes. Unfortunately, two key components of the II product, II Explorer and the i2 Analyst Notebook plug-in for II, do NOT presently support the full Liberty framework for authentication. Rather, they support ONLY the Liberty basic authentication scheme, which is a manual configuration of users and passwords within each deployed Liberty server. This is highly suboptimal for these reasons: 1) There are hundreds of users that now need to be manually administered across multiple Liberty servers, which the NYS central enterprise staff refuse to own, 2) This does not conform with the NYS standard for identity management, 3) There is no way to configure and support a Single SignOn solution.
