Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Settings to prevent Cognos Controller Web user to click on Set to Ready

In Cognos Controller Web, user is able to click on set company status to ready when they multi select on the company. The user sometimes confuse other users submission with their own, thus accidentally set wrong submission to ready. So if possible would like to have a security settings that control user access by submissions or prevent user from set a company to ready.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    Your scenario is correct. User 1 can either 1) use the ‘set to ready’ function in overview page to change company status to ‘ready’, or 2) enter into company workflow, click submit button under ‘Submit’ tab (even when there is no visible form under ‘Populate’ tab due to forms security).

    Client would like to be able to restrict access/security by submission, for example user 1 has access to submission 1 only. Upon login to controller web, only submission 1 is visible to user 1. Alternatively, if the afore mentioned is not possible, prevent/prohibit users from using ‘set to ready’ function or ‘submit’ button to update company status to ‘ready’ where they are not supposed to.

    So we understand the scenario to be like this: 2 users and 2 submissions. 1 user has access to the forms in Submission 1 and the other user access to the forms in submission 2. The issue we think you are saying is that User 1 can set the submission 2 to ready even though they do not have access to the forms in submission 2. Is this correct?
