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.

Impossible to edit non-Docker params on the application profile, without Docker entitlements

we have a customer that does not have the entitlements below assigned to his role( expected ):


The problem is, if they have a container definition created and assigned in their application profile, they cannot edit the application profile anymore. Even in configurations NOT related to Docker.
The permission issue is:

Failed to register the specified application profile. : Security error: User does not have privileges to perform this action, the specified consumer does not exist, or the VEMKD service was not active during permission checking. This operation requires permission for consumer . Check the VEMKD status if permissions are correct.

We need this fixed as we don't want to add those entitlements to consumer's role but we need to continue to allow them editing other configurations of the application profile not related to docker.

If we as ADMIN remove the container definition, they are able to edit their application profile normally.

To reproduce:
Create an deploy a symphony application with Docker enabled ( at least one container definition ).
With a user with a role assigned that DOES NOT have Docker entitlements permission , try to edit anything in the application profile ( not related to Docker ).
After click in save, the error above will happen.
I am available for any additional question.
