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.

Allow agent logs to be accessible from UCD server UI according to name pattern defined in agents log4j

Currently the "request agent logs" feature from UCD server UI only supports the agent log files in format agent.out.<INDEX>. We are working with teams which updated the agent log4j to alter the log file name to a daily naming syntax, e.g. agent.out.2021-09-21. We would like to be able to retrieve all agent log files from the agent through UI following the pattern agent.out.* or according to the pattern defined in the agents

    • version added next to the allowed filename agent.out.<INDEX> also these two allowed file names for upload from the agent : upgrade.out, upgrade.log

    • version improves the response for the AgentLogFileService from previous response 500 to more appropriate response 400 for requests with an invalid file name

    However, agent.out.<DATE> is still not among allowed agent filenames in the latest UCD version 7.2.1, and it would be very good to have such filename added among allowed filenames for upload from the agent to the UCD server.
