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.
Add/Extend CA REST API endpoint to retrieve groups/roles/capabilities for a specified user
In the current state, there is no endpoint within the Cognos REST API that allows an administrator to query another user's groups/roles/capabilities.
Having this available would be extremely useful as we will have the ability to speed up our support procedures by being able to look up the user's permissions prior to engaging with the user so that perimission issues can be identified faster. In the current state, this requires us to contact the user and have them show their "My Preferences" option in the portal to see their groups/roles/capabilities.
