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.

Granular access types for VSI's (not just 'access' or 'no access'

Dear Team,

IBM Bluemix portal used by VF team to maintain its infrastructure for cloud products, what QA team observed is that Reviewer role user can see and update the device password, ideally which should be restricted due to security reasons and not explored to read on access. I raised this issue with support team but they responded back with below answer

Unfortunately there is no way to allow access to most of the server info and not the password information. The way the access works in our portal for details about a sever is full access, or no access. We have user settings for being able to reboot, initiate an OS reload, manage\create images, or editing the host name. We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause.


I would suggest to add this issue in your future release as an enhancement and if possible plz share roughly timeline for the fix of this issue .


Kind Regards,

Tejpal Singh
