IBM Power Ideas Portal


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).

    Thank you for taking the time to explain your issue with our product. This issue would be more easily resolved by opening a Problem Management Record (PMR), since it appears to be a defect or change in behavior in the product from previous releases. For more information on opening a PMR, please see:

    This RFE is consistent with our strategy and product roadmap and IBM is continuing to evaluate.
