IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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 vote them if they matter to you.

  1. To post a new idea - select "Add a new idea" and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

  2. Vote 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 notifications 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Associate the apps to the users within an organization

Currently, bluemix allows the apps to be associated to an organization and when a user belonging to the organization logs into bluemix, he can see all the apps created by the users within the organization including his own apps.

It would be much better if we can provide an option to view the apps owned by the user logged in as well.

For example:
Lets say if a user has left the org or removed....

- To remove what apps he has created would be difficult to figure out.
- With the growing number of apps, the figure out the apps owned by a user will be much difficult.
- Also, there is no track on the space and services used by a user.

    Currently, Cloud Foundry does not allow this. Apps are provisioned into Spaces and user-level ownership does not exist. We have received this feedback before and will continue to investigate how we might influence a change to CF in this area. Will update here as we make any progress

    With the recent activity tracker integration with IBM Cloud and CF, tracking this information should be possible already - it is possible to go back and see app operations by specific users - this should cover this case, this is not something we want to enhance

    Could we overlay a capability to add more information about an app...including who built, when it was uploaded, when it was last run, perhaps uptime stats, etc...then we could use that data to do reports against all the apps. I am suggesting a whole different app meta-data definition stored in the IBM specific code. If CF ever builds, we can try to integrate in the future.
