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.

Provide the ability to delete all associated actions when deleting a maintenance window

When testing the generation of autonomic actions into a maintenance window, it is sometimes very helpful to be able to delete all of the actions that have been generated into a maintenance window. This is true even if the actions are generated as passive actions. Deleting these actions would allow the user to iteratively test the conditions defined in an exception profile to verify that the process is working as expected and that the right objects are being triggered.

The problem here is that the current design of both Data Server Manager and the Db2 Automation Tool do not give the user this choice. The only choices currently presented to the user when deleting a maintenance window are to a) reassign all actions in this window to another maintenance window, or b) to do nothing with the actions which causes them to be ORPHANED. (A message box does pop up warning you of this). A third option is needed to allow the user to simply delete all actions as part of deleting the maintenance window. This would greatly help prevent orphaned actions from building up in the Autonomics Director database with no way to ever get rid of them.
