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.

Make Locks table usable for all

The locks table does not load for users if they lack certain read permissions. Being able to identify what's holding a lock is a useful function that should be more accessible to all. Instead of nothing loading, it would be better if at least a subset of locks were displayed, where permissions allow.

    Do you mean the groups/teams and roles/permissions? Could you describe what is behind those settings? Please could you present screenshots of the settings (groups, teams, roles, permissions, settings on artifacts and the error)

    Say for example there are 100 active locks, and a user does not have read permission to a component associated with one of these locks. The entire locks table would fail to load for that user, nothing would be displayed, only an error. This limits the usefulness of the locks table to admins with full permissions only. A degree of visibility should be available for more users.

    Examples of errors that prevent locks table loading:

    An error has occurred. User 'test' does not have read permission to a Environment: DEV

    An error has occurred. User 'test' does not have read permission to a Component: Project2

    Could you please give us more information (scenario, use case) where this happens. Thank You
