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.

Charge display when changing VSI configuration on the portal


We want to improve the interface of the VSI configration changing screen.

It is difficult to understand the charge display contents when changing the VSI configuration.

We want to see the following in one screen:

- The monthly fee for the current configuration of this VSI (including network and optional items)

- Charges that will be added to the change (new charges) (Delta)

- The monthly fee after the configuration change for this VSI (including network and optional items)


When we change the VSI configuration, the display for changing VSI configration on the portal are confusing.

When we change the VSI configuration on the portal, we want to know the total charge for the current configuration and the total charge for the changed configuration. (We want to know the total charge for all the configuration items of the target VSI, not just CPU, memory, and HDD.)

Now we think that it is very difficult to understand the current total amount of this VSI and the change amount when changing the configuration of VSI.

So we are requesting to improve the price (fee) display on the order screen when changing the configuration.
