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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Show not only username/uid in Synergy GUI, but also Firstname + Lastname

Hello Synergy development,
here comes my enhancement request:
it would be helpful, if Synergy shows not only username/uid in Synergy GUI, but also Firstname + Lastname.
Data for Firstname + Lastname should be provided from RDS.
This function should be made configurable:
I. e. e. g. with a setting in $CCM_HOME/etc/ccm.properties (or $HOME/.ccm:user.properties) this feature can be switched on or off.
Enhancement proposal from Richard F. Sheehan, BAE SYSTEMS:
Like in Rational Change it should be possible to select between ?userid?, ?firstname lastname (userid)?, or ?lastname, firstname(userid)?.
Thus perhaps this also could be built in into the Synergy server (java process), e. g. in the tab "User Administration".

Use Case
Our company uses rather cryptic usernames (e. g. mine: uid65263). It is much easier to see Firstname + Lastname. (This feature already is available at PTC / MKS). This feature could be delivered e. g. with a fix pack upon CM 7.2.1.
