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.

Workspace WebSphere Liberty
Created by Guest
Created on Jan 9, 2018

SPNEGO / Kerberos across multiple Liberty instances

Our environment is working this way:
There are several different host server (Windows) which are hosting the applications:
Host A (JTS, RDNG, RQM), Host B (RTC), Host C (JTS_Lic, Licenses, JRS, DW, ..)

All applications are running in different profiles, which means Host A is running with currently 3 different profiles.
On JTS hosted on HOST A multiple applications are registered (RDNG, RQM, RTC, JRS, DW) which are located on 3 different servers in total and running on 6 different profiles.
What we want to achieve is that using SPNEGO / Kerberos you do not need to type in your username / password for any of those applications.
This behaviour is possible using WAS.

Currently we are not able to get it running using WebSphere Liberty.
The last working configuration is that SPNEGO / Kerberos is running only for JTS application.

From the PMR it sounds that this is the current behaviour liberty is supporting but we need the support across multiple WebSphere Liberty Instances.

Please go ahead and implement it.
