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):

  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management

  • Cloud Pak for Network Automation - incl Orchestration and Performance Management

  • Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps - incl Netcool Operations Management portfolio

  • Edge Application Manager

  • IBM Observability with Instana

  • ITM-APM Products - incl IBM Tivoli Monitoring v6 and Application Performance Monitoring v8

  • Workload Automation - incl Workload Scheduler

  • Tivoli System Automation - inc Tivoli System Automation Application Manager (SA AM), Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms (SA MP)

API Filter for tenants in the integration with grafana

Configuring the Metric API as a Grafana data source Last Updated: 2022-02-24 The Monitoring component provides an API that enables metrics to be accessed using a subset of the PromQL query language. This API provides access to all metrics that are stored using the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management observability service. The API can be used as a Grafana data source. This enables you to create ad-hoc metric queries and custom reporting dashboards in Grafana based on the Monitoring metrics. More reference links are available here: Reference information. In the documentation describe this information, because the services need filter information for user and/or tenant. I have the case number TS008256261, "We are integrating with Grafana, but we want the integration to filter only for a specific tenant, we currently have two tenants.", kbixler (IBM), 30 mar 2022, 10:47 seid: Following up on case TS008256261. We would suggest that you open an RFE for this and the product management team will review for consideration to be added to future release. This API does not perform filtering by tenant. It is fully compatible by design with the prometheus API, which enables it to be used as a Grafana data source. In response to metric queries, the API returns all metrics (regardless of tenant) that are stored in the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management observability service. Any filtering that is needed must be performed at the promql query level by using metric labels. Metrics that are stored by IBM Cloud Pak® for Multicloud Management are labeled with the IAM account id (label name account_id). In addition, the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes Observability service adds a tenant id label (label name tenant_id) to each metric.
