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.

Support for ODM Res Server Deployment using authorization Token for ODM plugin

Current IBM ODM UCD plugin uses Basic authentication mechanism (that is username and password) for the Res Server Deployment. Currently the Res server is being migrated to AWS instance and using OKTA for authentication. We would need enhancement to the current ODM Plugin version also to use authorization token for Res deployment authentication.

Below IBM documentation can be referred for more details which describes usage of “authorizationToken”

    Now that our company is moving to OKTA authentication, this feature is critical to our use of ODM with OpenId connect. We use UCD to deploy our Rule snapshots and without an OKTA enabled IBM UCD deployment plug-in, we will need to look for an alternative solution. Please reach out to us and let us know as soon as possible if this can be implemented by you, or suggest another solution. I look forward to hearing back. Thank you!
