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.

Need way to schedule TM1 Server Restart

Need the ability to schedule a restart of the TM1 server.
Right now it is completely a manual process which requires a person to work after hours to perform this action. We need some way that a TI process or Command Center or the PAA to have a time set on a schedule.

    Not sure if this would be an option for the OP environment, but an approach does exist using a TI (and chore for scheduling). While perhaps not ideal - a TI can accomplish this via the ExecuteCommand function and a batch file to stop the service and then start it. This approach can be fine-tuned of course for timing aspects and include other housekeeping actions as well.

    Yes, there is no way to schedule TM1 Server restart. We are doing it every month manually. It would be really helpful & reduce the overheads if this feature added to PAoC.

    Agreed. We have no easy way to maintain our cloud environment to keep it in sync with the current on-prem we are moving from while running them in parallel. 


    This will also be needed to keep our cloud DEV in sync with PRD once fully migrated.


    I believe CCC is the best solution as there are other processes that will be dependent upon when the server comes down so that data copies can take place, and then started back up.
