IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

IIAS Web Console alert settings for backup failure notifications

In case of a Db2 database backup failure, an e-mail alert should be sent to a specified e-mail address. This should be configurable in the IIAS Web Console. It's essential that we detect and remediate failed backups whenever they may occur. The current workaround of having to manually check every day's incremental backup job to ensure that it's successful is a drain on our DBA team's productivity. Since a mailing distribution list address may be used to reach multiple recipients, special characters like a plus sign (+) and hyphen (-) in the e-mail address must be acceptable in the email notification configuration.
