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.

Generating an HTTP server configuration by using the web user interface

We use the IHS in front of the IIB and are looking to migrate to the ACE. We don't know how we are going to generate the Plug-In as the new version does not have the same tool as the IIB web interface.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. Although there was a period earlier in the product's history when there was widespread usage of IHS in conjunction with IBM Integration Bus, this combination is not so common these days. As noted since the CMP API was removed when ACEv11 became generally available back in 2018, the web UI feature to generate the IHS configuration based on top of this API has not been available. Unfortunately re-establishing this aspect of the CMP API is not a strategic imperative for us for the v11/12 product sets. Given that this utility was really just a helper to export our settings, we of course remain happy for users who wish to continue using IHS through manual configuration to point it at the ACE HTTP ports.
