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.

Health Check Script for OpenPages

There are many settings, configuration files, parameters, etc. in an OpenPages installation. It would be helpful if we had a script or utility that could validate those settings against one another and against the installed environment. For example, ensuring that the configured database client is 32-bit, and the client tools are available in the path when needed. JRE versions are another common source of problems.
The script will need to validate integration points with the Cognos and WebSphere components.

Also incorporated in the script may be compliance with specific security settings. This could ensure the OpenPages application is compliant with security guidelines as well as make it easier and faster to check security compliance during an audit.

It may be beneficial to have two scripts, one to ensure compliance with the application installation and one to ensure compliance with security guidelines.

I volunteer to assist with the creation of such a script.
