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

Post an idea
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.

Improve error reporting for creating objects without teams
When a user tries to create an object within UrbanCode Deploy without permissions to view it after creation they get the following error template:
User '$user' does not have $permission_name permission to a $object
In the case where no teams are aligned to the object & the user is not part of the system team, the error could better be reported as:
There are no teams mapped to $object.
The permissions error is confusing for end users who are not familiar with the nonces of the permissions system. This can lead to extra work for the UrbanCode Deploy system administrators.
This issue can happen very often when 'Default Teams for New Objects' is set to 'none'
