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.

For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit ibm.com/ideas.

SAML does not send LOGOUT request from SAML SP to SAML IdP

Background, this is for IBM Connections customers using SAML. Currently, when SAML customers try to logout of Conncetions they can't because SAML does not send LOGOUT request from SAML SP to SAML IdP. . Find ,spec here section 4.3 of
http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-profiles-2.0-os.pdf

Customers expect to be able to select Log Out and then get returned to the SAML login screen.. Meaning, the current implementation does not support Single Sign Out Workarounds suggested would require customers creating their own implementation to redirect to their SAML idP . Please see PMR 81966,L6Q,000 and emails for further details.

WAS Version: 8.5.5.1 (and above) and 8.0.0.8

    Thank you for the suggestion. The requirement does have merit, but looking at it with respect to our total backlog of requests we do not see sufficient interest in this enhancement to merit delivery any time in the foreseeable future. Given the unlikelihood that we would deliver this, we are declining the request rather than leaving it in an uncommitted state for an extended period of time. If you would like to discuss this decision further, please contact Graham Charters <charters@uk.ibm.com>.

    I believe the relevant section of
    http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-profiles-2.0-os.pdf
    is 4.4 (Single Logout Profile), not 4.3.
