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.

UCD Agent install as non-root user using UCD Blueprint
Using UCD Blueprint Designer 6.2.4 linked with IBM Cloud Manager with Openstack we are trying to provision Linux VMs in order to run UCD component processes. When we add UCD components to a blueprint an OS::Heat::SoftwareConfig resource is added declaring a predefined bash script that installs and starts the UCD agent. However, the script below installs and runs the UCD agent as root user. Due to compliance reasons we need to install and run the agent as a non- root user that will have the appropriate sudo permissions.
