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

License Compliance for Cloud Pak for Automation for Prod and Non-Prod env based on entitlement ratios

 

  • So, License Compliance advisor needs to provide the compliance status based on the below deployment criteria:

    • Prod vs Non-Prod: : Cloud Pak for Automation is charged differently for production vs non-product environments.

      • Also there are some components which are not chargeable for non-prod but are chargeable for production environments.  .

  • Ability to provide status of compliance based on Cloud Pak for Auto Entitlement value ratios: When customer purchases CP4Auto licenses, entitlement values are based on the capability customers chooses to use.

    Since this looks like a request against License Advisor, I am moving it to the Cloud Pak for MCM Aha repo

    Hi @shekar- I would like to know if the guidance provided by Piotr is sufficient to unblock your adoption? If you have further needs for this particular Aha Idea please let us know, otherwise I would move to close it as we already provide the necessary capability.
