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 CAAC has reviewed this IBM Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority Idea that is important to be addressed. From a security perspective, this is a valid request. An exit point similar to the existing IFS exit point is needed for NFS.
Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual IBM Ideas on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your Idea.

The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a HIGH priority requirement that is important to address as the lack of this feature opens the door for potential security risks. CEAC suggest to implement an exit point similar to QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV for NFS.
Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

Exit point QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV is only used with the file server and IBM i NetServer and not the Network File System Server (NFS).
The QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV exit point will not be modified to be used with NFS. However, we recognize that NFS does not provide similar capabilities and will consider this as we plan future work.
