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.

A report showing what users have access to what services/resources

We want a report for audit or if I mess something up as to who has what ACL to what resource, service, etc.  This way I can compare and contrast or find out that someone is an Admin that shouldn't be.

We are running a POC and have a shared account and are adding users to organizations, CF Org, Spaces, Resource Groups and Resources along with services.    If you mess up on the initial panel, it is a poke and hope that you get the right access to the right resource or service or whatever I am missing.  This POC extends to Watson Data Platform[WDP] ( and their security model.     I have an IBM Cloud Administrator role and a CF Manager role then DataPlaform roles and I cannot add new users from IBM Cloud to my WDP unless they are part of some role or group.   Way too confusing.

    Hi Tom, thanks for submitting your idea to improve the IBM Cloud Platform. This capability is currently implemented with Activity Tracker.  As we move forward, Activity Tracker is rebasing on a new technology and we will be re-enabling Activity Tracker to provide this capability again within Q2 2019.  Please work with our AT team on this idea.  In the meantime, I will add this to a work item to investigate what reporting IBM Cloud IAM should be responsible for in the future versus our Activity Tracker product.  Thanks!
