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.

11.5 version deprecated LogManagement folder in Webconsole

IBM took away the “Log Management” from the Webconsole in 11.5 version.

When our istool deployments fail, this is place we look at errors today.
Infact even in version 11.5 error message still say it:
““Unexpected error importing design. See the log in the Web Console for more details.
Unexpected error importing design. See the log in the Web Console for more details.”
But the log is deprecated in Webconsole, when we go there.
The alternative today WebSphere tracing isn't helpful. In our case it didn't help us resolve the issue, so we have another PMR opened to help understand and resolve the issue. It is currently being worked by engineering(PMR 18293,082,000).

The best way is to restore the LogManagement folder within Webconsole and provide the features it does today in 9.1.2
