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.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Use this email to suggest enhancements to the Ideas process or request help from IBM for submitting your Ideas.
One piece of information that would also be helpful if this request becomes a reality, is the share name being used. While it can currently be obtained for current sessions, we need to find a way to report share names that are being used. This would allow us to clean up unused or infrequently used shares, and also determine who is using R/W shares to see if they could be moved to use shares with more specific paths. Periodically capturing the shares in use is cumbersome and could easily miss some that are just used for brief periods. By adding this information to a journal entry when the connection is made would allow for easy reporting of the shares in use.
When considering this, may I politely ask you to also have a look at the "Unknown User Attempts". They are registered when viewing the IBM i Netserver status.
We have people asking us where they come from and to monitor this 24/7. Today that can only be done on IBM i with a communication trace, but that was not designed for 24/7 monitoring if you ask me.
The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a MEDIUM priority requirement that should be addressed.
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

Thank you for submitting this request. We do understand the request. The needs to secure and monitor the system are ever-evolving and we strive to provide the means to provide these capabilities as we are able to.
We will consider this request as we prioritize our future work.
