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.

Support First Time Password change between SSP/SEAS and B2Bi managed user accounts and subsequent password change should be allowed via SSP password portal to change the B2Bi password through SEAS.

How will this idea be used?

External trading partners are created in B2Bi with local authentication, that means the password is stored in B2Bi database; Security mandates that the default password on the first login should be changed by external trading partners; Add ability to SEAS to understand the response from B2Bi and then provide it back to SSP so SSP redirects to the change password screen. If the changed password does not meet the password policy set in the B2Bi, password change should fail and request the user to reset the password again.

Also, security mandates to change the password every 180 days thereafter; We have created a password policy in B2Bi to force the above security mandate. When user login to the SSP portal need the ability to show that "your password will expire in X days". Also if the password is already expired then able to understand the same and redirect the user to the change password screen. If the changed password does not meet the password policy set in the B2Bi, password change should fail and request the user to reset the password again. Adding these functionalities into the product helps to meet the security mandates without a huge manual effort.
