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.

Enhancement Nbr 2 for Adding Additional User Information to the BRMS Recovery Report - QP1ARCY

Adding Additional User Information to the BRMS Recovery Report is a great way to get customer or system specific information into the recovery report

However, there is a need for a few enhancement in this area.

The added user information for a step are added last for the specified step.
There are occasions where you actually want the information to be read before starting a specific recovery step, having it last could result that the recovery step is carried out before the important information have been read.
It would be great if you could choose if the information should be added first or last for a specified step.

Proposed solution: Have two members for each recovery step/action. One for adding user information at the top of the recovery step and the other for adding text at the bottom of the step.

Use Case:

Flexibility to choose if you want the user added recovery information first, last or both per step.
