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.

Implement PowerHA Administrative Domain Policies in os 7.3

It would be very usefull to have Administrative Domain Policies (at least QCST_AD_CREATE and QCST_AD_DELETE) implemented by PTF also on 7.3 version of operating system the same way like QHA_AD_ANZCADPRF policy.

Use Case:

Deletion of user profiles or any other object still required some programming skill and effort. It is the base functionality to allow remove object within the all nodes in the cluster and should be available in 7.3 not only the newest version 7.4

    Thank you for providing your feedback. While we always work to bring new functionality to as many releases as possible, the automation of the administrative domain driven by the policies introduced in PowerHA 7.4 relies on core functionality that is only available in the 7.4 version of the IBM i operating system. In order for clients to take advantage of this automation, it necessary to upgrade to IBM i 7.4.

    For clients who are at IBM i 7.3 and prior versions, the IBM i Lab Services PowerHA tools for IBM i has programs and tools to help with automating the administrative domain. For additional information on the Lab Services Smart Assist Tools see:
