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.

Implementation of MFA-Ping to access WMLA

Currently, WMLA doesn't have implementation of MFA where ping can be used to have multiple factor authentication. UI page of spectrum conductor expects the username and pwd to be entered.

    Appending previous discussions to provide some details:


    We are trying to implement Multi Factor Authentication for WMLA. WMLA itself doesn't support MFA so we are trying to see if can set up MFA using PING Access then redirect the traffic to WMLA dashboard page. Trying to understand what data needs to be provided from PING Access to be able to connect to WMLA dashboard.


    Hi Prabin,


    Right, both ways do not work for the current WMLA design yet, and IBM team suggests you could log RFE on this feature request. FYI, here is a summary of your requirement based on my understanding.

    • After user passes PING Identity 1st factor authentication then redirected the traffic to WMLA dashboard page, it IS expected to ask user to type username/password manually on WMLA GUI page for the 2nd factor authentication.

    • In case user accesses WMLA GUI page first, it IS expected that user to be redirected to PING Identity service to go through above MFA process.

    As RFE is supposed to be tracked by IBM engineering team with you directly via IBM Aha portal, I will go ahead to close support ticket later if you have no further concerns. Thanks.


    Best regards,
