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):

ITNM EventGateway GwMainNodeLookupUsing function to exclusively look for the ACCESSIPADDRESS instead of all the IPAddresses.

The ITNM EventGateway GwMainNodeLookupUsing function tries to find a match with all the IP addresses associated to a device (all interfaces), causing events from devices that are not in ITNM to be associated to a device if the device discovered by ITNM has one interface with the same IP Address as the non-discovered device.

As the name suggest, GwMainNodeLookupUsing should use just ACCESSIPADDRESS for comparison.

Idea priority Urgent
Use Case
Prevent ITNM Event Gateway to improperly assign events from devices that are not even discovered in one domain to be associated to a device with one interface with the IP address.
