Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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.

we have done a network installation of iACS inside our IFS with restricted access for functions like "run SQL-Scripts". Our Users can only see the 5250-Emulator and their SPLFs. We have entered the restrictions inside the AcsConfig.properties-file. So far so good. When the users then open a 5250-Session (=HOD-Session) from the iACS-headmenu they find a toolbar with all icons and with access to functions we have restricted in the AcsConfig.properties-file !? Additionally the restricted functions can be also clicked inside an HOD-Session via the Menue Actions ! To restrict the access to this security-relevant functions you must additionally edit the .hod-file. To check if everything is fine we looked for a documentation of the key-val-pairs inside the hod-file. But it seems there is nothing available for customers, but only for IBM-Developers. To restrict the access to the menubar, we found out that this can be done by entering the hod-DEVD-files with the iACS Session Manager. Our RFE would be to synchronize the Restrictions of AcsConfig.properties-file with HOD and other related entry-functionality of iACS. But one point is really missing: a documentation of the key-val-pairs inside the hod-file. We made a lot of try-error changes inside the hod-file and from my point of view this is all but not productive.
