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 portal, 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.

In V5 Developer Portal, We used to have restrict access by IP feature and in V2018 reserved instance “User Restrictions- Allo

Background:

In V5 Developer Portal, we used to have restrict access by IP feature and in V2018 reserved instance User Restrictions- Allowed IP Range. When we tested this feature in V2018 - we see it's not working due to Cloud Hosting being unable to get the original client IP that is accessing the portal. IBM Classified the issue as a Deployment Configuration Issue and tried to fix it but they have challenges in resolving it and is left open till now.



We still need this feature, as our security team mandates we restrict external developer portal access to our NON-PROD environments. Only approved whitelisted partners should be able to see the NON-PROD portals. The portals should not be publicly available. We also need to whitelist our internal portals (those that contain APIs we will never share outside of Humana) so that only Humana Network IP Ranges can access them.

Also can you have someone tell us what active threat protection features (like those available in Akamai) we have for our portals.

    The current cloud architecture of RI does not allow the portal to access end user's IPs. We have not seen this request before and suggest connecting with the IBM Cloud network team on a recommended configuration.
