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.

Computer enhanced access - client installation issues

Company security requires our Admins to to remove accounts from the local admin group. Users should have rights granted in another way. It fails if the user ID is not explicitly in the administrative group, even if they are given administrative rights from group membership, like the fs_ field services ID or through Computer Enhanced Access.

But that does not work and client install fails. Admins are asking from IBM support:

"We need to find out specifically why the install needs admin privileges to succeed. If we know which process needs admin we could possibly create an elevation policy for it in Avecto"

    DataStage go forward will not need such elevated rights. So will close this enhancement request
