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.

blstat or blinfo command line tools are available to get information about license tokens, however there are no API functions for this purpose which would be very useful in license querying automation, because parsing of the console output of the commands is less efficient than processing in-memory data structures.

    You can find the LS header files in sample source code package. The package is available on Fix Central. The fix ID is lsf-

    There is an API for License Scheduler, tho it appears the header file for the api's has been omitted from the package.

    In the short term, you can obtain the header file via your technical account manager. It will be included in a future update.
