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.

Inconsistent security in relation to user groups display

Telstra is using RAM7.5.1.1 and there are 40+ user groups in customer's environment. However, on the page [Communities] > [Any Community with user groups] > [Configuration], only 20 user groups are displayed in the list no matter if using an admin or normal user. Customer thinks this is not consistent because it should either allow users to see all or none.

From RAM dev team's opinion, there is a limit of 20 user groups that can be shown on one page based on current RAM design, this is due to performance reasons to allow the page to show information quickly.

Therefore Telstra wants to raise this RFE to add a pager to the list to page through 20 entries at a time. In this way it will display all the user groups.
