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 notifications 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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on-premises, containers, cloud):

    @Matt Rodkey this is related to the work that Amitabh is doing around SSO and integrating CP4MCM with MCMP. Ian and I have been discussing this with the GTS team and they have some customers looking for this feature. I will go ahead and promote it to our epics board and we can discuss this further.

    Matt Rodkey: Actually the other way around. The intent is to iFrame MCM in MCMP. I need to determine how I can possibly assist in updating the MCM code so that it can be iFramed in MCMP. I can send the metadata file for a starter and work with anyone to update the MCM code to allow it to be framed.

    Per discussion with CJ and Ryan, MCMP is requesting for GRC view to be integrated into MCMP.

    GRC view will include - GRC overall view, Security findings, Create policy, Policy details and Violations.

    SSO needs to be established between MCMP and CP4MCM, Its getting worked out separately.

    With one dev sprint left and Overview UX just coming together, this is not contained in the dev sprint.

    One additional point, we will look for help from MCPM team for env and test help

    Ryan, Can you outline what the requirements are in your mind for CP4MCM? Sounds like you intend to iframe in our UI, but I assume you are expecting there is some technical work that must be done on our end?
