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.

Urbancode Download plugins from the server

Hi Team,

There should be an option to download the installed plugin that is currently installed on the UCD server.



This is a good backup feature to have during upgrades, or in case if teams are developing internal plugins or very old UCD plugins if some teams are still using. Teams can easily download the plugin to inspect any weird behavior etc. without touching the backend server directory.

    As (almost) all versions of the plugins can be downloaded from the official repository ( or GitHub) it wouldn't add value to UCD functionality.

    Admins should be allowed to download the installed plugins from the UI.
    This functionality is good to have and currently not available.

    For e.g., currently if teams find an issue with a new functionality of the plugin they can only obtain the plugin from the agent's var plugin folder to investigate (need knowledge of this) but for that deployment has to happen first to that agent.

    It would be good to have this download feature in the UI itself so UCD can allow download of the plugins similar to how agents, relays, cli zip can be downloaded from the Tools section.

    This is not a required functionality but a good to have feature.
