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)

  • Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager - TADDM

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Discovery Console - History Panel Enhancement

Some basic enhancements within the history panel in the Discovery Console:

1: The user can currently select multiple discovery entries from the top panel. The discovery details in the bottom panel should be updated to reflect details for all select discoveries.

2: A metrics panel should be displayed in the history panel (or as a popup from a button click) to show a summary of statistics for one or more selected discovery entries.

3: The user should be able to export the lower panel discovery data to PDF or Excel. The Summary of Statistics should also be included in the export.

4. The user should be able to filter the lower panel discovery data to show details of a specific Sensor(s) or specific Host(s) or specific description etc.

    Please confirm below understanding on the "Discovery Summary" details:
    1. Number of Discovery Servers Used : We understand, this is the count of different TADDM discovery servers used for selected discoveries.
    2. Number of Discovery Sessions Started : This is the total count of session sensors triggered for all the selected discoveries.
    3. Number of Devices Discovered : Here, by devices do you mean the app servers, storage devices, database servers or component type ? If yes, then this count will give the total number of component types for all the selected discoveries.
    4. Number of Profiles Used : This is the total count of discovery profiles used in selected discoveries. Here, Our assumption is that you are referring to the "distinct" profiles being used.
    5. Number of Sensors Used : This is the count of all the sensors triggered in selected discoveries. Here, Our assumption is that you are refering to the "distinct" sensors being used.
    6. Number of Sensors Discoveries Started : What is difference between this metric and point 5 metric (Number of Sensors Used)? Is only difference that here total count of sensors is being referred, i.e. repeated sensors also counted.
    7. Number of Sensors Discoveries Succeed: This is the count of all the sensors which executed successfully for all the selected discoveries.
    8. Number of Sensors Discoveries Fail : This is the count of all the sensors which are not successful, i.e. have reported errors. (warnings are not considered in this count)
    9. Number of Sensors Discoveries Warnings : This is the count of all the sensors which have reported warnings.
    10. Number of Events : What do you mean by events here ? Does it mean the different error types like Timeout Issue, Connect Issue or Storage Issue ?

    Adrian, so that we can get a better clarity on the needs you have, can you please tell us what types of errors you look for, and/or how a error is recognized? The initial thought is, if there is a way you needs could be addressed by a diagnostic utility that transverses the data looking for key indicators.

    In addition, I have split the RFE into 3 new RFE's, dividing down your requirement into individuate requirements, to making reviewing and tracking the requirements easier. All 4 RFE's are associated to the same dW RFE ID, but you may not see the new internal numbers reflected. As a note, the new RFE numbers, in addition to this one, based upon your original order are as follows: (2) 87690, (3) 87691, and (4) 87692.
