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.

Permissions for PAW folders stop deletion for Edit

PAW- new Permission level is provided Edit-NoDelete so we don''t have a User deleting folders and books they have access to.

With Edit the user has permissions to Add content (which seems to be correct), but can also Delete (like with full control permissions). We seem to have a missing level, as folder delete is easier than going through a folder and deleting every object one by one.

Suggest a new Permission level is provided Edit-NoDelete so we can live easier with the knowledge everything is not gone when we arrive the next day after an over zealous user has been cleaning folders. Especially when there is no way to automate backups in PAW

Only difference for Full control allows the user to set permissions on objects.

    I've updated this enhancement request to not under consideration.

    While this idea does have merit we are not planning on implementing new permissions within the next 18 months. The IBM Planning Analytics team may reevaluate this idea at a later date.

    Consider the use of the view only permission level if it's required to prevent a user from deleting Workspace content. Users with view only can make a copy of the Workspace book and will have full control on the copy.
