Q: Can I whitelist IPs for Ideas?
A: Ideas is hosted on different servers from the parent VersionOne instance. The Ideas servers do not support whitelist controls.
Q: With Ideas, is data encryption at rest supported?
A: No, it is not. There should never be any sensitive data on those forums anyway. It's just for people to say, "hey I want this to work that way", not for posting anything that could be sensitive or mission critical. If someone does that, you should take their computer away. ;)
Q: Does Ideas support SSO?
A: Yes! As of the Spring 2019 release we now support SSO for Ideas! Please contact your CollabNet Account Manager for details and any potential costs involved.
Q: Well, then how do I control who can access it?
A: The public vs private setting lets you dictate what email address domains can be used when someone signs up. So you say only people with an @so-and-so.com email address can sign up, then if someone tries to sign up with a gmail account, it will not let them. And it has to be a legit email address because they will have to verify the email address before they can access.
