This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Use this email to suggest enhancements to the Ideas process or request help from IBM for submitting your Ideas.
The requested support is already available. Please contact IBM Service if additional help is needed.
Thank you for submitting your Request For Enhancement. The behavior you are requesting already exists and functions as you are requesting.
In your Description you state:
???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"
This would be considered a defect, not an enhancement. However, we have been unable to reproduce the above described behavior. If however, you opened the 5250 session from the Desktop and not from the ACS main GUI, you are likely invoking a configuration for ACS that is not using the AcsConfig.properties file that contains the restrictions. Since this is a network installation, the root cause is going to be that your customized AcsConfig.properties file is not getting propagated to your users. One reason that can happen is if your users already had an AcsConfig.properties file present. If that is the case, an update will not overwrite an existing AcsConfig.properties file.
I see you opened IBM support Case TS008450059. After reviewing the Case, apparently our Service team was not able to determine the reason why this is not working for you. You should not have to modify the .hod files to get the desired behavior. In fact, that could cause additional issues and is discouraged. I will contact the Service team about this. Please contact our Service team again and refer to your previous support Case (TS008450059) and this RFE. They will work with the Development team for additional assistance.
Setting this RFE to ???Need More Information". Let us know when you have contacted Service.
