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.

Multiple TM1 Login Server functionality in PAW Admin Tool

If you're using TM1 authentication mode it relays on only one TM1 login server, and when the admin server related to that TM1 Login server goes down, automatically all connected TM1 Amin servers become unavailable. This poses a big threat to service for those using multiple TM1 instances on multiple admin servers (If the TM1 login server fails, then all TM1 admin servers and all instances become unavailable).

Proposed enhancement would be to have multiple TM1 Login URI functionality within the admin tool, thus allowing a safety net if 1 admin server fails.

    Updated status to Not under consideration. We are not making considering any investments into Workspace authentication based on TM1. Our intent is to eventually support OAUTH authentication with Planning Analytics components (PAW, PAfE, and TM1).

    This single point of failure for TM1 server farms where a single failure makes all TM1 DBs unavailalbe across all TM1 admin servers is not very practical for an enterprise level application.
