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.

Add BRMS & AJS to the new Navigator for i

The New Navigator for i is brilliant. Today we are forced to use the heritage Navigator for i if we want to maintain BRMS and the Advanced Job Scheduler.

BRMS and AJS need to be part of the New Navigator for i as soon as possible, removing the need to go back to the heritage Navigator for i.


Use Case:

Having to do system management tasks through different interfaces makes life more complex.

As we honestly do not see 5250 emulation as a valid alternative for managing BRMS and AJS in the year 2022.

Apart from that for AJS that is not even possible when using the "enable" functionality of AJS.

    Completely agree, I feel like this "new" navigator was a step back. We are BRMS and AJS user and have been forced to keep the "old" navigator. Functions like Work flow Manager (in AJS/IBM i v7.3) are only available in IBM Navigator for i interface (heritage navigator).

    agreed. We use this extensively and must rid ourselves of the Log4j exposure in "heritage" navigator, however cannot reasonably do so unless this functionality is included in "new" navigator.

    Adding BRMS and AJS to the new Navigator would be a great job. We are trying to push our clients to the new Navigator but many of them use at least BRMS and it became a focal point managing the systems.

    With the BRMS plugin in Navigator the only way to manage omits, it isn't feasible to not have access to this function without using unsupported software. We actually use the 5250 menus to manage BRMS and have been frustrated that we had to use a different interface for this function in the past but to not even have it available either way is not cool.

    Some function are not available using CL or 5250 menu and have to be made available soon.

    I echo in the Year 2022, for IBM to expect us to revert back to 5250 emulation for system management is absurd. They spent years shepherding us away from the Windows Client by ending support for that product and wanting us to embrace the Navigator for i product. Now they are going to end support of the Heritiage client by the end of 2022. The new interface is a poor replacement as it exists right now. AJS and BRMS graphical management needs to be a primary function included.

    When working with thousands of jobs in AJS or doing daily BRMS tasks having a GUI is a must.

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address.
    It should be addressed as part of a migration from the heritage Navigator for i to the new Navigator for i.

    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.

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. These are key functions that must be incorporated into the new Navigator interface to increase adoption and have a full solution -- there are significant security requirements to get off from the old Navigator interface.
