AI Applications - Ideas Portal

Welcome to the idea portal for IBM AI Applications Customers

IBM Employees: Please use:


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

Start by posting 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 offering manager 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.

IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.

In order to safeguard your information, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.

NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions

Easier db config changes in clustered environments

It would be helpful if non-WebShpere admins could make db config changes in clustered environments. In other words, add a field to a table in a clustered environment -- and do it all from within the UI.

    You should not have to shut down the JVM's.

    "Regarding the use of Admin Mode in a clustered environment we recommend that when you are planning to go into admin mode that you shut down all the JVMs but one."

    "This also applies for Control Desk 7.5 and 7.6 (and Maximo 7.6, 7.5, 7.1, TSRM 7.x, TAMIT 7.x, and CCMDB 7.x)."

    If I understand correctly, it's only possible to things like "shut down all the JVMs but one" from WebSphere...not from the Maximo UI.

    More information can be found in TS006286516 (including detailed system information).

    Thank you for your submission. This should be available after a fix that was made available several years ago. Can you confirm this is still the behavior you experience in the latest versions? Thank you.
