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 Original Job's User Profile to SPOOLED Files or Original Qualified Job Name to QPRTJOB SPOOLED Files

When swaping user profiles, if that job creates a spooled file, a SPOOLED Print Server Job is created and the job name is always QPRTJOB with a User of the Current (swapped-to) user profile. There is not way to reference back to the originating Job or User Profile (pre-Swap) by accessing that SPOOLED file's attributes. The request is to provide a link back to the original user profile or (preferrably) the original job. I recommend simply populating the SUBMITTED BY JOB fields in the Job Attributes of the QPRTJOB job that is created with that of the original job. That would give you this link. Currently the Submitted by Job is blank in QPRTJOB jobs.
