IBM Security Verify

This portal will be removed

In IBM’s effort to continue to streamline and simplify navigation for our customers, this Ideas portal will be shut down on February 28, 2023. We would ask that you use the main IBM Ideas portal at or the IBM Security-specific portal at to review, vote for existing ideas, or add new ideas.

First Login behaviour

We need to mark our migrated users to have a first login behaviour. User should be able to be marked or unmarked for first login via api. The behaviour could be something simple like redirect the user to a specific webpage. Should send to this page the original webpage url that should have been redirected if it wasn't a first login. Should mark this user as authenticated but in a first login state so integrated apps can check for this before allowing him to access a specific function.

    At this time, this would be considered business logic and we would anticipate the application being accessed to handle this redirection. However, we will keep it in the backlog for future consideration.

    Revisiting this - (after our discussion over the phone) - additional flexibility around policy and access controls including the ability to drive a redirection based on user attributes is planned for the platform in the new year. This might achieve some of the capablities you describe in this Idea.
