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 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 a 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.
If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to email@example.com for resolution.

Add support for com.ibm.mq.cfg.jmqi.useMQCSPauthentication in WAS 8.5.5.X
Currently the MQ RAR packaged with WAS 8.5.5.X is too old to support com.ibm.mq.cfg.jmqi.useMQCSPauthentication. This means that for anyone who is unable to move to WAS 9 any MQ connection is required to use far less secure passwords.
