Display "SoftLayer ID" in IAM Manage IBM Portal

I'd like to Display Column "SoftLayer ID".

In our management method, the"SoftLayer ID" has the same name, but only the"SoftLayer ID" is different.
The new portal does not display the"SoftLayer ID", so it is confusing because it cannot be operated without opening and checking each one.

    Hi. ben-san


    thanks comment


    usecase of ourteam:

    1. we team only use "SoftLayerID"

    2. Account name (company name) is all unified in Name, and I don't know which ID from the list

    3. Some e-mail addresses linked to SoftLayerID are group addresses and all look the same on the list


    Thank you for better consideration

    Hi Shoichiro and Tomoari,

    We would like to understand some more information about this requirement. Can you provide a use case for why the Softlayer ID is needed in the user table? We are currently not prioritizing Softlayer related enhancements, but the concept of enhancing the user list with customizable options is valid. We are investigating the possibility of making the columns in the user list modifiable and customizable with different fields and columns.

    It will be useful if we can modify the columns of user list of IAM.
