Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for resolution.

The Useable WebSphere Auditing Functions Are Required by the Department of Defense
The current WAS Auditing function does provide readily useable logs to even track down simple events such as starting/stopping an application server via the WAS Admin Console. I would like to see such functionality added to the NDM audit logs.
I also sending up an excel spreadsheet that outlines all the requirements for application server auditing for any WebSphere server deployed within a Department of Defense environment as specified by the Application Server V3.1 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) as maintained by Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). So that mean any WAS server deployed within the US Navy, US Airforce, US Army or other Federal environments.
The issues in the spreadsheet are considered CAT II issues and not adhering to these requirements or having a Plan of Action/Mitigation (POAM) would prevent an project from getting its Authority To Operate (ATO).
