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.

Change the license type

To avoid UCD outages (what means no deployments anywhere) during license key server downtime even when LKS has HA redundant server configuration (while license servers may be kept by different team and had downtime issues), the UCD licenses should be kept on UCD Server for a grace time in case of failure to get licenses during real time (similar as UCB that keep its committer floating licenses for a month). For instance, when using UCD server/agent license, the LKS has to be up all the time, because UCD does not start when LKS is down. And even if using UCD simultaneous session license, when LKS is down, UCD is not able to deploy anywhere. There is no room to support UCD outages nowadays anymore!

    Thank You for providing your request for enhancement. As there is a technical solution using RLKS HA setup or putting the RLKS on the UCD server, there is no need to add additional license functionality to UCD.

    It is always possible to put the RLKS on the same server as UCD for maximum connection availability.
