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 for resolution.

Option to configure OIDCClient to pass the sessionID in a more secure manner

We have learned from our security team that the session ID for the /oidcclient/redirect/azureclient URL is being passed in the URL using clear text. I had opened a case with WAS support to see how the issue could be mitigated by sending sessionID in a more secure manner. I was informed by WAS support that there is no way to configure the product to pass the session ID any other way. Support suggested that we submit a request for enhancement. The enhncement that I am looking for is to have the session ID be passed in a more secure manner or at least have an option to pass the session ID in a more secure manner.

    Hi, thank you for submitting this request for enhancement. After evaluating this request, we believe the existing method of passing the sessionID is secure as long as the HTTPS protocol is being used to fully encrypt the request. For that reason, we don't believe it is necessary to further secure the passing of the sessionID.
