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.

Add a colored border for different environements in RDi

In IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) - Run SQL Scripts it is possible to set a colored border for different environments/connections. This is really helpful when working on different (customer) environments or test and productive environments.

Adding such a colored bordering to RDi would be really helpful.

Currently I work only with a single connection/environment just to make sure that I'm not working by accident in a wrong environment or a wrong machine.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    At first I'd need it for the editor, which would be the most important thing, to avoid changing sources in a wrong environement (Development / Productive / Customer A / Customer B ...).

    For the editor different background colors or watermarks would also work.

    Having also individual borders for the object tables would not be bad, to make sure we are working in the right environment.

    We need to know if you want all views, or just the editor to include the new border; ie, do you need this on Object Table view? (If editor only – watermark/background instead of border color?)
