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.

[User Interface and Configuration] EGO - CLI - Command to change resource plan in CSV format

We have a resource plan that can have multiple time interval based on the hour.
We have a resource group created for the desktop scavenging hosts and we specify zero share ratio for the resource group during business hours (7am to 8pm) in the resource plan to ensure they are not allocated for running workload. This configuration has the drawback to forbid desktop scavenging usage during business hours on Saturday and Sunday
We would like to be able to use these desktops fulltime on Saturday and Sunday and keep the zero share ratio for business hours from Monday to Friday.
There is no Symphony feature to allow multiple time interval based on the day.
We want a command with the functionality to import/export CSV format resource plan so it can be scripted to happen before and after weekends to change the resource plan.

The current command line (egosh consumer applyresplan) only takes XML format and it is high risk to manually edit such a file for users.

    .The resource plan's complication goes beyond what CSV may describe. The direction moves to json or other advanced format.
