IBM Security Guardium 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

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 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.


Post an Idea

To post a new idea - click on the "Add a new idea" button and select the appropriate capability area this idea relates to. Do provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request. If 'Guardium Data Protection' capability is selected, you will be prompted to select the category/product the idea relates to. If you are not sure of the category/product your idea would fall under, then select 'IBM Guardium Other' in the drop down list and proceed from there.


Please note: The purpose of the Ideas Portal is to tap the creativity of the Guardium Data Protection community so that we can enhance the product for everyone! If you need to report a defect or get help, please use our normal support channel. Click here to open a support ticket.

Verizon considers this a bug but was told to submit an RFE by support. Verizon does not agree.

Per CASE TS005357069, Verizon wrote: "I noticed on my central manager and collectors that the tomcat and system.cert.pem certificates are displaying expiration warnings. From my records these would not be expiring until October 2021. The warning notification on the gui and when you enter cli command show certificate warn_expire show the date in DD/MM/YYYY format but when you run cli command show certificate summary the date is presented as MM/DD/YYYY which is correct and expected. What date is actually used? I am uploading a file that shows the results of the cli commands and the screen shots of the gui screens for my central manager and one of my collectors. Will the functionality of my system be impacted if the date is not interpreted correctly? Shouldn't all dates be in the same format?" They were told to open an RFE, but Verizon disagrees and says this is a bug, so I am opening this RFE on their behalf so that someone can evaluate it to determine if in fact it should be considered a bug. At the very least, it should not be reporting the expiration warnings so far in advance if it is interpreting the two different date formats correctly. Please review and comment so I can let Verizon know your decision. Thank you! Sally

    Good Morning. I have a call with Verizon this afternoon and I'd like to give them a status on this request. Could you please give me an update? Thank you!
