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.

changing owner of an account

being at the distributor level and on Pay go side.  we do not have the ability to change the owner of an account on the fly.  we would need the ability to update the owner when the owner moves on or the distributor needs to take control of the account.  Today in the old Softlayer portal normally we use the agent portal and change this info.  I normally have to do this at least 2 to 3 times a month with roughly about 150 BP account and several end users under the BP's.

    As of December 2017, it still is not obvious if there is a way to change the account owner in the console (when the avatar is clicked and the account information is shown).


    The ownership seems to be set to the name of the creator of the account, or the company name if that field is filled in. Once the account is created, that name is fixed, and updating the information both in the infrastructure portal and the My IBM profile does not reflect correspondingly in in the account info drop down.
