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] Comment option for soamcontrol app

There are multiple teams manage apps. One team may not know why the app is disabled by another team. Hence, we request comment option for soamcontrol app command. Besides, there are comment options for both "kill session" and "kill task". It does not make sense no comment option for disable app which is a higher impact activity.

    .This is a good suggestion however not a current priority of roadmap development. The Role Based Control Authorization framework implemented in Symphony 7.x provides the required permission management for applications.

    We view this as a valuable feature and one we are looking to incorporate into a future release of Symphony.
