We have an important project that needs to source the data from the SharePoint page. The default authentication method in our SharePoint farm is 'NTLM' which is not supported by Hierarchical stage. It's impossible to enable the other method on our side as any change would affect the entire farm..
Implementing this feature would allow more ways for the connection.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Both IBM and us can benefit from it. IBM can retain us if the DataStage can provide the features needed. We don't need to pay the extra cost for a thirty party tool.|
How should it work?
Now we have to purchase a commercial ODBC driver- CData driver.
If this features is available in Hierarchical stage, for us, there will be no extra cost and no further technical and procurement maintenance as supposed to the Cdata driver.
As well, it could show the power of the DataStage, which helps build the confidence to renew the license.
|Priority Justification||It is needed for an important project of us. We have other potential use cases that need this feature.|
