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:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Post your ideas
  1. Post an idea.

  2. Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.

  3. Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Get Notifications events via API

Currently the only way to notify maintenance events is via mail and unidirectionally or by entering the web. There is no way to consult via API (or in any other way) the maintenance / events bulletin. It would be of great help if this bulletin is available to be consulted by some other means and thus be able to manipulate this information within the organization to generate alerts, calendars, etc.


It happened to us that we found out late about a critical maintenance that affected productive servers, because we had not seen the email, and this brought us considerable downtime.


In short, the idea would be that this information is exposed and can be consulted by some mechanism that is not via the web or email subscription.
