IBM Data and AI RegTech Ideas Portal

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

Post 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 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.

Integrate FTM with SailPoint IdentityNow for centralized user account governance and provisioning.

SailPoint can be integrated via an API or a JDBC connection directly to the database. The IdentityNow product would need to be able to perform the following:

1) Add a user and assign to an existing FTM group or groups

2) Change a users group membership

3) Lock a user

4) Unlock a user

5) Delete a user

6) Pull a list of users, group assignments and permissions

Actual request from SalePoint:

• API Feasibility to manage user’s access in FTM

o Is there an API that could be used to fetch all users and their accesses

o Is there an API that could create a user into FTM

o Is there an API that could assign a role in FTM

o Is there an API that could fetch all the roles in FTM

o Is there an API that could update/revoke a user’s access in FTM

• Connecting via JDBC

o Can we fetch all users and their access in FTM by querying a table/staging table/view

o Can we fetch all the roles in FTM by querying a table/staging table/view

o Can users be provisioned to FTM by inserting user to a table/staging table/view

o Can a user be added to a role by inserting or updating to a table/staging table/view

o Can a user be removed from a role by updating a table/staging table/view

o Can a user be revoked from FTM application by updating table/staging table/view

If the above options of API/JDBC is feasible, please provide additional details.

    FTM already provides patterns and integration points for Single Sign On (SSO) and third party user management systems such as LDAP, Active Directory, etc. and similar systems.

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions
