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

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 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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Functional ID used with Buildforge requires passworfd management intergration with Cyberark.

CASE: TS002704430
We have a Functional ID tpccadm that is used to connect from linux to connect the BF windows agent.
We need to be able to use the FID without knowing the password.
Citi has an application 'Cyberark' that manages the FID passwords.

Would you be able to assist how we can integrate BF FID tpfccadmn password to managed by Cyberark

Use Case

    The Build Forge Development Team is in the process of evaluating this RFE and would like to request more details on how CyberArk is expected to be used with Build Forge. This is currently a unique request and a better understanding of the use case should help us determine what kind of functionality changes could be required.

    Would both Build Forge Management Console and Agent be required to interface with CyberArk setup? Or can the Agent alone contact CyberArk and determine if a connection from Management Console should be allowed?
    What is the type of interface available on the current setup of CyberArk?
    Online research reveals several different APIs and methods for CyberArk. If a more specific (minimal) use case or interface could be specified, it could make the RFE more doable; likely to be included in the plan.

    The Development Team will be available to talk over a meeting if necessary. The development team will then be able to determine the feasibility and hopefully later a plan for implementing certain prioritized parts of enhancement in a future release. Please note that this RFE is still an uncommitted item but more use case information can help us decide sooner.
