Cloud Platform

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.

Allow authentication with a certificate

In UrbaCode deploy there are two possible ways of authentication:
userid/password and token

Both authentication mechanisms are not considered secure enough to trigger deployments from an external pipeline.

Use Case
we would like to integrate urbancode deployments from an Azure DevOps pipeline in a secure way. Userid/password and token based access are not secure enough. We need certificate based authentication in order to solve this issue.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.

    I would like to express that with the move towards cloud, many companies will have their tooling suite in a cloud platform. This increases the demand for secure access to your deployment solution. sOx compliant companies need to have a 100% secure authentication at production deployments on application code that might influence their company balance position. Urbancode Deploy therefore need to provide that level of security.
