Cloud Management and AIOps

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

For AAA SmartModel in ITNCM-Base not matching SmartModel in ITNCM-Compliance.

aaa authorization commands 15 default group tacacs+
appears to be modelled in the driver
but when using the "create a new definition" wizard only the following is
available
aaa authorization commands 15

similarly

aaa accounting network default start-stop group tacacs+
appears to be modelled in the driver
but using the create a new definition wizard only the following is
available
aaa accounting network default

also the following detail is missing from the driver

"aaa accounting send stop-record" is there but "authentication failure"
is missing
"aaa accounting exec default start-stop" is there but "group tacacs+"
is missing
"aaa accounting connection default start-stop"is there but "group
tacacs+" is missing
"aaa accounting commands default start-stop"is there but "group
tacacs+" is missing

apparently "this is compliance GUI related only, the schema for the device is absolutely fine its just the modelled definition selector panel that doesn't support selecting multiple nodes."

A workaround has been provided, but we feel that this should be represented correctly in the GUI.

Idea Priority Medium
Use Case
Definitions created in the "create a new definition wizard" should clearly reflect the operation of the SmartModel.
