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.

Send CF application logs to IBM Cloud Object Store directly

We are using a 3rd party logging and analysis tool to send our Dedicated CF application logs to.  This service is good for short term purposes but has a significant price tag for log term log data storage (which we need - in some cases our industry requires a 7 year storage).  

We would like to see something in the dedicated CF platform which will automatically send the application log data to IBM Cloud Object storage.

    • Customer is planning on using Splunk Cloud
    • They want ALL logs from their Dedicated environments to be sent to Splunk.
    • Splunk will only retain 90 days (number of days is not final but it is a short term) worth of log entries.  It is cost prohibitive to use Splunk for long term retention.
    • They need a cost effective solution for long term retention of logs.  They require long term (many years) retention for regulatory and compliance reasons.
    • They are considering COS for long term retention.
    • They need a way to store ALL logs from their Dedicated environments to a customer provisioned COS.
    • They will access the provisioned COS using the S3 APIs and pull the data into other systems for analytics and other purposes.
    • So they need ALL application logs sent at the same time to Splunk and to COS.
