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.

    Thanks everyone for submitting this idea. This is still under consideration for Bluemix Local.

    We will not be implementing this for Bluemix Dedicated. This feature is incompatible with both our strategic and technical direction going forward.

    Is this similar to IDEA-I-23?

    Lionel - what is the customer's proxy policy specifically? Why would they specifically want to block the entry but not the entry? Why does the custom redirect not suffice?

    Thanks Lionel. This is a known requirement and we have it prioritized in our backlog. We are working with our Cloud Foundry team to bring this requirement through open source in order to deliver on this. Thanks for adding your input.
