IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Cloud and its products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).


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:

Ability to disable or extend session timeout for power virtual server lpar sessions

We are using the IBM Cloud services as our DR strategy. We have a couple of large databases that would have to be restored during a DR scenario or our annual tests. These database restores require interaction and run for nearly 4 hours. Disabling session timeout would alleviate the manual monitoring of the jobs and making sure we click the screen every 15 minutes. If we lose our session, the job dies.
