IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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 vote them if they matter to you

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote 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 notifications 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Manage and view individual SSL client certificates

Using mutual authentication in Bluemix requires the loading of client certs or trust stores.

This is possible via the Bluemix console, but there is no way to list or view current client certs, and there is no way to upload an additional or revoke a single client cert without going through the entire upload process of server cert, private key, intermediate, and client trust store altogether again.

This method takes time and is could introduce problems if an incorrect cert is uploaded by human error.  Changing a client cert should not mean having to change server certs.

When revoking access, rather than just being able to delete a cert, we have to re-upload all which again could have an impact on running services.

    Screenshot of the domain SSL in Bluemix console.  There is no option to add only an individual client certificate.  The upload button is only enabled when the server cert and private key are specified as well.  Only then can I add an entire new client trust store.    Would be good to be able to upload a single new client cert.

    Not sure why you didn't see the internal comment but the question was:

    Can you please provide a screenshot of where you are experiencing this?

    This has been changed to 'Returned for specifics'.  There is no explanation - do I need to provide further details?  Is there an action on me as the requester or is it being reviewed by Cloud team?
