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.

IaaS Classic Infra Events there is no link in the portal

We will receive IaaS maintenance events via email
Since the mail system may become undeliverable, the event page was also browsed regularly on the classic portal screen so far.

I can still get there because the event details link is in the email, but you can't get to the IaaS Classic Infrastructure event notification anywhere you look on the portal


We expect to see links from the classic infrastructure screen.

If there is already a link, I would like to move to a location that is easy to understand.

    Hello Mark, I can not find event on you said workarounds.


    for example, I checked event by IBM Cloud Event mail

    I want this notification to provide a way to get of the portal
    Notifications were delayed for two days due to delays in e-mails, etc., and the situation could not be grasped.

    Hello Shoichiro. In the console at, if you click on the bell icon in the header next to the account dropdown, you'll see three options - one for classic infrastructure announcements, one for planned maintenance, and one for unplanned events. The planned events that used to be only at the URL you mentioned here are now included at
