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.

SSM Instrumentation

As a debug mode, have a instrumentation mode that can be easily enable on configuration side. Instead of a new binaries that need to be deploy and rollback.

    Talked with Jeremy over the phone about the request. The request is also triggered by another ticket TS002628359.

    SSM throws unexpected exception from time to time and restarts itself. Symphony code fails to capture the detailed exception message and line of code where the exception happens. Since the function contains many sub functions where such exception could be thrown, repeated instrumentation has to be prepared to capture the exact location of the exception.

    It would be great to have such a button on WEBGUI for customers to enable/disable debug data collection. It involves many manual steps to collect the data for investigation. And it could be easily forgotten by grid admin and missed the important data collection step.
