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.
Allow Users to Modify Data Sources, but Not Create New Ones
We have permissions and capabilities configured so that users are able to change their own signon passwords and refresh their own schemas. This supports us significantly in our efforts to allow self service for our users. The users with this ability do not have access to the Administration console so they cannot create new data sources via the portal; however, the glass interface has a "+" icon to create new data sources and we have not been able to figure out how to prevent this. Users are able to create their own data sources and we want the Administrators to be the only ones that can do so.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
