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.

Authentication Aliases are useful for storing credentials to use for connections.
While Cloud allows you to designate Data sources, it would be useful to be able to create Authentication Aliases as well.
Without Authentication Alias, user will have to enter their username and password into a field or store it in an epv or env variable for access. This is not as secure as storing in an Authentication Alias.
Client creates a Java Mail connector that takes authentication for sending outgoing mail from a secure mail server.
Admin goes into IBM BPM on Cloud Operating Environment Management Admin section, selects the drop down for their environment and clicks Authentication Alias under Datasources.
This displays the list of "exposed" authentication aliases for the user and they can either choose to update an existing or create a new authentication alias.
User creates a Authentication Alias, specifying the name, maybe the users that have read/write permissions (in admin section), username, password, and description.
This Mail connector allows an Authentication Alias name input that will extract the username and password.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
