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.

Need an option to block/unblock an agent in uDeploy

Hi Team,

We need a feature or an option in UCDeploy to block/unblock an agent from connecting to the UDeploy server.

Could you help us with information on this.


Use Case
There are about 1500 agents connecting to our servers and we have a scenario here that users sometime stop using the application and just uninstall the agents from their machine and not delete the resources on the web UI. After few days the same user would install the UCD agent on the same machine where it was uninstalled initially. Because of this there would a duplicate entry created under the resource and creates a lot of confusion. If we have an option to block the agents it would help us avoid duplicate entries. We can just block the agents and inform users to clean the installation directory and resources from the Web UI before re-installing the agents.

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

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
