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.

Improve Active-Deploy deployment labling

When specifying a custom label for a deployment in active-deploy, the label cannot be found in the active-deploy-list. Using the deployment id is required to retreive the label with active-deploy-show.
I suggest to generate a label by default, that can be substituted manually and display the label in the active-deploy-list command instead of the id.

    This is an excellent suggestion and in fact has already been done.

    Run these command to re-install the Active Deploy plugin:
    cf uninstall-plugin active-deploy
    cf install-plugin active-deploy -r bluemix

    Then when you run this command: cf active-deploy-list

    it will show you the updated LABEL field:

    label id status start group ...
    UPDATE2 8d8aaec2-dd02-49c0-9286-be78282a6a8d paused app3 app (4) ...
    UPDATE1 c784dc26-7e3d-45ee-91d9-00ac39eb15ea completed app1 app (1) ...

    Any questions or additional requests for this, please contact me
