This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. 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).
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:
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 an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.
email@example.com - Use this email to suggest enhancements to the Ideas process or request help from IBM for submitting your Ideas.
We are considering this enhancement as part of our long term roadmap.
Thanks for the details. We will evaluate the request for GUI option.
The link given does address what is asked for in this RFE. The fact that only a command line solution is provided does not fill the need for the HMC GUI interface.
When working with a GUI as the HMC is, the option to change the sender mail address needs to be in the GUI and should not be limited to a command line command only. After all this is an action which nearly every HMC end customer I have spoken has on his wish list, all of them have limited HMC knowlegde.
The command which needs to executed "chsacfg -t email -o addfrom -a firstname.lastname@example.org" is straightforward, but what do you think a customer prefers this command or an option in the GUI.
I find it hard to explain to an end customer that the GUI does not have the option to do something as simple as changing the sending mail address.
I do understand that not everything can be added in the GUI, but this is a basic function and since the rest of the mail setup is in the GUI, I think the requested function needs to be added.
Please fell 100 % free to disagree, after all it is just my opinion.
We have evaluated the request and there is an option in the chsacfg command to modify the email address from which the customer notifications will be sent.
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/9119-MHE/p8edm/chsacfg.html . Can you please check this option and let us know if this addresses the requirement?
The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address.
This is a significant restriction in functionality, with no workaround and as an HMC's key function is to monitor we feel this needs to be addressed quickly.
Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ ibm.biz/BdYSYj and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at ibm.biz/BdYSZT
