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.

Add ability to modify or delete the artifacts (policies, rules, catagories) created in Policy Manager

Right now the UI doesn't allow any modifications of any type/form in the UI. This makes it really hard to use, since it's impossible to recover from accident mistakes when authoring a policy, catagory, or rule.

    The following information was provided by Bhavani on August 3rd:

    Policy Life cycle behavior as discussed with Jay/UX Team yesterday.
    New Policy / Rule State changes
    New -> Save as Draft or Activate
    Draft -> can come back edit
    Draft -> Archive [ Discarded Draft ]
    Draft -> Activate [ Deploy Policy for enforcements ]
    Activate -> Archive [ Disable/Delete a Policy ]

    Currently implemented in the UI are Activate and Archive. The latter has the same effect as disabling or deleting a policy.

    Currently you can "delete" a policy through Archive. This will inactivate a policy.

    unfortunately archive is NOT the same as delete. mistakes need to be deleted (perhaps indirectly through a trashbin), archive is the notion of "not used regularly", which is different than "oops, this should never by used by anybody"
