Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on premises, containers, on cloud):

IBM Configuration Manager to support WebSphere's Custom Password encryption
As of today, the IBM Configuration Manager utility supports only the IBM default xor encoding to connect to WebSphere and does the application configuration and deployments.
We have enabled the WebSphere(WAS) custom password encryption in our organisation as IBM default xor encoding is vulnerable. Since then we are not able to use the IBM Configuration Manager tool of the components (FileNet, Case Manager, Content Navigator, BAW etc) for the application configurations and deployments on WebSphere.
This will make the organisations forced to adapt vulnerable xor encoding, in order to use the configuration manager for application configurations and deployments on WebSphere(WAS) as there is no alternative method of deployments provided by IBM.
Requirement: IBM Configuration Manager utility should be able to connect to the WebSphere where the custom password encryption is enabled.
