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.

Verbose logging for OSLC sessions

Ability to have verbose logging of OSLC sessions along the lines of how normal CQ Web sessions are treated in the SystemOut log, or special cases for "FULL" logging mode. Today, OSLC sessions do not have any significant logging activity in the CM Server logs as normal CQ Web sessions do. This makes OSLC sessions much less transparent to troubleshoot/see activity/diagnose issues/affects serviceability. CM server logging today focuses more on when a requests completes and how long it took. Bosch is also interested in when a request starts, not just when it finishes (since it may not finish successfully and thus not get logged)

Idea priority High
Use Case
If a user sends an OSLC request, complete logging should be possible including when it started
