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.

Provide the ability to assign "All Teams" to an object in UrbanCode Deploy

Our team uses UrbanCode Deploy for software deployments. However, we have several components and templates that are 'shared' among all users of the product.
With current functionality, every team that wishes to consume one of these objects must be explicitly assigned.
It would be very useful to have the ability to add a pseudo-team 'All Teams' which would effectively grant all teams the same role access to that object.

Use Case
We have several shared components, component templates, environment templates and resource templates which are made available to any team that wishes to use them. These templates and components have been created in the interests of removing duplication and re-engineering of common processes used in deployments. We would assign an 'All Teams' team to these shared components so that any new teams created automatically have access to these shared resources.

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

    There is a way to do this in UCD, but it is not documented. Our plan is to send LLoyds the information and update the UCD documentation on this.
