IBM Power Ideas Portal

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 this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to 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 Power teams 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 notification 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.

Support mapping MFA users to either local groups or LDAP/AD groups

Better troubleshooting when HMC doesn't display devices like disks when it should.

When the CMDB on the VIOS server is wrong, then the HMC simply does not display what you should see, and you have zero insight into why. We had issues with disks, missing UUIDs, or other errors. There should be a command, maybe a little more refin...

Change the calculated storage size returned by SNMP to be more in line with what the query (QSYS2.ASP_INFO) and WRKSYSSTS return

SNMP shows the following: .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.4.1 StorageAllocationUnits = 32768 .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.5.1 StorageSize = 315593355 .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.6.1 StorageUsed = 180845384 The math against those numbers gives me Total Storage = 9631.144...

Provide access to "extraction program" used by DSPLOG and QMHOLHST API for Developer use

The QMHOLHST API is fine for simple selection and use but it not only omits a few pieces of the QHST log (such as from program and stmt nbr) it also severely limits the number of jobs that may be used to restrict the results. (currently 5) and the...

Customizable install location of PowerVC (rather than always /opt/ibm and /var/logs)

Add FOR COLUMN or FOR SYSTEM NAME to Function Return Column Definitions

For User-defined SQL Function, today we can define returned column name using up to 128 characters. There currently (as far as I know) is no way to also assign a shorter, more memorable "System Column Name" to the returned parameter. For example:...
