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 a notification 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

sort order of groups in the user properties in the CQ

Request the possibility to sort group list in Alphabetical order

CQ User Administration should have sorting function for group list in User Property tab.

Idea Priority Medium
Use Case
The Groups in the User Properties in the ClearQuest Administration is displayed in order of the creation not in alphabetical order. When there are a lot of groups in an application, it's hard to navigate and select the right groups for a particular user. The 'non sorting' alphabetically makes adding/removing a user from groups a time consuming task.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
