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.

Add http proxy support for Guardium ServiceNow integration.

To reach the ServiceNow SaaS service we need to go through a specific http proxy that has been whitelisted. It would be good to be able to configure the http proxy in the Guardium ServiceNow configuration set up. This would be common requirement for ServiceNow integration.

    Guardium supports integration with ServiceNow SaaS instances. During configuration and setup, you must alter firewall rules (at the network level) to provide access. Many firewalls can be configured to allow only a certain set of IP addresses (for example, Guardium machines) access to certain external hosts, bypassing the proxy for just the GDP machine.

    Please let us know if this helps with the issue you are facing given your scenario, if not please elaborate, we will happy to review this further.
