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

Create Alcatel VOIP xml with given name

ADD_NGHP_GPON_VOIP_XML, a modeled Command Set of Alcatel/PON/OLTS-L/*, should generate xml with provided name instead of the sequence name.

Current XML Name: alcatel-VOIP-.xml (e.g. alcatel-VOIP-1489594405064.xml)
Expected XML Name: ---.xml (e.g. BNBYBCTFOT01-18-8-32.xml)

Use Case
ADD_NGHP_GPON_VOIP_XML, a modeled Command Set of Alcatel/PON/OLTS-L/*, generating xml with a sequence name. i.e. alcatel-VOIP-timestamp.xml. This is taking some time & effort to correlate between ONT and relevant xml and extract xml content. Current XML Name: alcatel-VOIP-.xml (e.g. alcatel-VOIP-1489594405064.xml) Expected XML Name: ---.xml (e.g. BNBYBCTFOT01-18-8-32.xml) Should be able to parameterize this value, which is static at this moment. configuration/rack/shelf/lt/port/ont/service-voip/VoIPParameterBlock ATA/ansi.xml

    Owing to the age of this request and resource restrictions we cannot commit to providing this capability in the near future. As a result we have declined the RFE. If you still feel that you require this, please could you explain the impact of not having this capability in the product?
