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

  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.

Requirement to mention multiple specific CICS stub ports for CICS DPL connectivity via CICS TS Agent

We have multiple CICS DPL stubs and when we start them on RTVS, these different stubs select random multiple ports to connect with CICS TS Agent.
Recently we have moved our RTVS to cloud servers where specific ports need to be opened for security purposes between RTVS server and the Mainframe env but in RIT and RTVS library settings we are only able to specify 1 port at a time which means only 1 stub can connect to 1 CICS TS agent at a time.

Use Case
1. Without choosing any specific port in RIT or RTVS Library manager settings for CICS stub port, when we run the stub on RTVS it randomly chooses any port to connect to CICS TS Agent. 2. To connect CICS DPL stub to specific CICS TS Agent on a specific port, we dodnt have any provision in the RIT or RTVS settings to choose more than a single port for multiple stubs. (provision to select specific port should be provided in stub environment settings only so that each stub can connect to its specific port)

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