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.

[Security][CE] - Hybrid Symphony / Active Directory integration security model

The Symphony Active Directory integration plugin removes all Symphony users with the exception of Admin, so that only AD users are available. This means that it is extremely difficult to migrate an existing cluster from the default Symphony security model to the Active Directory security model, as all client software and PCs would need to be updated at the same time as the cluster itself.

The AD security model should support a hybrid mode - using both Symphony and AD users. A good example of this implementation is Microsoft SQL Server, which supports AD users / groups and users defined solely within SQL Server itself.
