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.

SOAP request SAML assertion is not functional by default on WAS.

When a SOAP SAML request which contains a full blown SAML assertion in it is sent over as an http post to WAS, it doesn't process the SAML assertion. Out of the box there is a WEB SSO TAI which can process a SAML assertion provided all the SAML assertion attributes are sent in as separate POST parameters. the Web SSO TAI apparently has code to process a SAML assertion but it also expects the SAML assertion to be sent in as a html form with name value pairs. We are attempting to send a SOAP request which is a single http post parameter and this http post has a full SAML assertion in it. This is not supported and we want this feature to be included in the base product on WAS. It could be implemented as another out of the box TAI for handling SAML with SOAP over http.
