IBM Sterling Ideas

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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 notifications 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.

The maximum length of a source or target HTTP adapter command required more than 3000 bytes

As part of a new rest API web service calls, we have an access token response length more than 2500 characters and this can't be included as part of body or default HTTP header. As API system is of legacy and used by multiple vendor systems these calls can't be changed from client side.

How will this idea be used?

As customer Restful system is a legacy system with latest oauth2.0 authentication type and it is called by multiple vendors technically changing the existing setup will not be an ideal case here, so from ITX we should be able to provide received access token in next successive business calls e.g. HTTP GET '-URL https://testsystem.com/v1/oauth2/?response_type=code&Authorization=Bearer access_token value(>2500 chars) .

    Best method for this functionality is to use the REST adapter (starting with v10.0.2)

    Here just token itself more than 2500 characters, including commands, URL, Headers etc.. may require more than 3000 characters. Please note.
