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.

A way to configure and use IDS (Intrusion Detection System) without Heritage Navigator

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6539162 had us disable IBM Navigator for i - heritage version and start using the new IBM i Navigator ( http://hostname:2002/Navigator ) (which we did (we also applied PTF 5770SS1 SI77928)).

The problem we are having is we are trying to configure and use the Intrusion Detection System as described in https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.3?topic=detection-using-intrusion-system-gui . It was in “Security” in the “heritage version” (as described everywhere I can find) but I am not finding it the “new” ( http://hostname:2002/Navigator ) version.

We need a way to configure and use the Intrusion Detection System without IBM Navigator for i - heritage version.


Use Case:

We need a way to configure and use the Intrusion Detection System without IBM Navigator for i - heritage version (recommended removed by https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6539162 ).
