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.

More functions for REST API to meet citi's business requirement

The idea is that the REST API should have the functions to inquiry Symphony common information but it doesn't have so far.

The three commands I listed are just samples. We won't be able to list all of them. Your side should know what inquiry commands are used for Symphony operations day to day.

Citigroup is currently investigating REST API and they found current REST API doesn't support some common functions in their daily use cases. For example:

1. egosh activity list -ll ==> Current REST API only support to get one activity.

2. egosh resource list -ll ==> Current REST API can only get all host names.

3. soamview command ==> It only can list apps related to MapReduce, not all the apps in “soamview app”.

Citigroup is implementing their Symphony cluster monitor tools by using ELK technologies. It will increase the performance if we could index JSON data directly to ELK cluster rather than transfer the CLI command output to JSON format.
