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. To post a new idea - select "Add a new idea" and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

  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.

Self-signed certificate for Java Adapter using Mobile Foundation Service on Bluemix

Need ability to add "self-signed certificate" OR "Self-signed certificate with signing authority" for Java Adapter using Mobile Foundation Service on Bluemix. We have deployed a Java adapter via Bluemix successfully. When trying to communicate between adapter and backend server, we are getting an exception (SSL Handshake Exception). We contacted IBM support regarding the solution for this issue and they have suggested that we ask for this enhancement as this feature is currently not available for Java adapter (Case ID : CS0010512). We have purchased Mobile Foundation Service licence (Professional per-capacity plan). Could we please have this enhancement made as early as possible as we have a project deadline hampered due to this error. 

Also, could you please let us know the estimated time and date of completion of the above request along with any financials involved, if any, for the same?
