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.

Show list of installed Symphony patches

We need a way to compare two installations (environments) of Platform Symphony in terms of applied fixes.
'About' window in web interface doesn't show the list of installed
fixes, so I'm concerned that some of my servers (cluster manger and/or
compute hosts) have differenet set of applied Platform Symphony fixes.

There are two similar RFE, but one is private and another one is for 6.1.1, but we use 7.1.1

I guess it would be useful if 'About' window would show build number and release date from below commands
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/sd -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/sim -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/smcproxy -V
$SOAM_HOME/7.1.1/linux-x86_64/etc/ssm -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/egosc -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/execproxy -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/lim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/melim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/named -v
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/pem -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/pim -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/rs -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/rsa -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/ussd -v
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/wsgserver -V
$EGO_TOP/3.3/linux-x86_64/etc/wsm -V

Another way is to have an option to add a column with component build number in 'All hosts' (list view), so versions can be compared on all cluster hosts.
