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.

License server info is displayed on RTAS/OTS even when non-admin user is logged in

Log in as "user1", who is not an admin user into RTAS/OTS
When this user logged in , they can see the license key server information , which is wrong.
As an administrator , you want to consider this as a security flaw, since the license server is present on a public cloud and this RTAS/OTS instance might be provided to Business Partners, and customers during demos. if they come to know the license server, they can by pass RTAS/OTS and hook up to the license server directly and pull the Rational licenses from there.

Idea Priority High
Use Case
In RTAS/OTS, when you are the administrator you can view and change license configuration : change amount of license, license server, add prioritized users And with a basic user, you can as well view the license server details. Exposing the license server info for basic users is risky as users can simply hook up their own instances of OTS/RTAS from different machines and access to this license server .
