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 product management 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 notification 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 which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
At present a CP4D admin ( Namespace Admin) needs to install and run CPD-CLI on a Virtual machine/Laptop in-order for his/her to run the OADP back-up. In an Enterprise world, this doesn't provide best Operation efficiency as there would be...
Administrative Monitoring Dashboard to see (and notify) all currently active logged in platform users and the services being used
This activity monitoring capability assists administrators to gauge system utilization and performance planning as well as better planning of maintenance such as upgrades. Knowing which users may be affected when pods or services need to be restar...
Provide use case level authorization in addition to the existing user level authorization
The idea is a use case related authorization to provide a more fine granular means than the current user based authorization. What we are looking for is that for each user the Active Directory will maintain a list of use cases the users are allowe...
CP4D does't use limit ranges for the analytical runtime enviroments R and Python
As an application manager for analytics, I want computer resources to be used efficiently and cost-effectively. Not using limit range on openshift means that only a few data scientists can use the system because all computer resources are immediat...
LDAP with SSO combining multiple ID field types #cpfieldcsm #cpfield
Bank of America uses LDAP with SSO. They were trying to use user search field as mail, but could not. The support case tech SME responded: Anytime an ID is used, you can not combine multiple ids as it will not serve the purpose. By default it uses...
Ability to determine through Monitoring whether or not sufficient resources to start an R or Notebook runtime environment are available per node
As Data Scientist I frequently need to start runtime environments. Often these are small enough and they quite naturally fit the available resources. Sometimes however, there is a very large environment needed. We would like to easily see and dete...
CP4D handling of users which are no longer authorized
If a Cloud Pak for Data user is no longer able to logon (removed from a AD group that is mapped to CPD group) then the user record in "Access control" should be marked as deleted. It should no longer be possible to authorize this user to any CPD s...
Show meaningful error message when a RStudio pod can not be startet because the system cannot request the needed resources
As a Data Scientist I frequently need to start runtime environments. Often these are small enough and they quite naturally fit the available resources. Sometimes however, there is a very large environment needed. Therefore I would like to see an m...
Installation procedure without "cloudctl" command nor GitHub
For security reasons, we would like to be able to install CP4D and the add-ons : without having to download anything from GitHub (we would prefer to download everything from the IBM container image registry "cp.icr.io" or from an IBM RPM package r...
Our application is used by people from different countries. At the moment the only option of changing the language in CP4D is to change the default one in the browser. Having the option either on main page or profile would be a lot easier.
