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. Post an idea

  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.

Ability to remove myself from an Org

Once I have been added to another person's account (organisation) I can't remove myself. I've reached a point where I have lots of orgs cluttering up my UI and CLI experience but can't remove myself from them. Add the ability for a user to remove their own access to things if required.

    The "solution" works only for removing your self from CF org .... I can't find a solution to remove your self from an account

    @Pat McCarthy

    I have a bunch (12) of POC accounts that have been closed since but they still turn up in my org list. How to remove them? I tried the bx command mentioend below but that fails with ORG_NAME(region:us-south) not found. Not sure why the region is getting appended to the ORG_NAME. Also, the ORG_NAME is a long one with multiple spaces.

    The right answer here is "available now" - if you use the BX CLI.  

    This command removes you from an org even if you are not the org manager:

     bx iam org-user-remove USER_NAME ORG [-f, --force]


    It does not get you out of their account, but it clears that org from the list (cli) and the org/space selector in the UI.  Which is what most people want.

    As we’re moving away from CF Orgs/Spaces - we’ll consider this requirement/usecase in our next generation of user management.

    This issue is quite annoying, I'm member of many 6 orgs, that have been used by Trial user. The user can not login and remove me, and I got the list of all orgs, the I'm working in my user account.
