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

Flag to avoid using login credentials from System Properties

Flag to avoid UOW considering login credentials from System Properties

Idea priority Medium
Use Case
On UOW, if failed to connect with credentials from Auth file, ITNCM trying to connect with credentials from System Properties at last. This is giving some weird experince to users some time. This DENY below is because on 2nd connect attempt ITNCM considering dummy credentials go/password from System Properties. And I do not know, whether it is a best practice to attempt login with dummy credentials on System Properties. Can we disable attempt to login with dummy credentials? It is giving a wrong impression to the users, with errors showing on UOW log. (19) Could not get actual model Failed all connection attempts to device 75.153.20.158:QLCMBC01OT01:1023 from location (a) Operation timed out while sending command: act-user::itdngpon1:::olt@Gp0n;. Error message found in the Response String Error token: DENY Complete info from device is: /* Length of the parameter value is less than minimum required. */ /* Error at position = 29. */
