IBM Security Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM Security

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including the product roadmap, by submitting enhancement ideas that matter to you the most.

Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and vote for them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote for 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 offering manager team 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.

Post an Idea

To post a new idea - click on the "Add a new idea" button and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

"Missing" Security Products?

If you cannot find the IBM Security product you are looking for then it is probably located in the IBM Security Private Ideas Portal. Check that site to open an idea.

Idea visibility

All ideas submitted via this portal are visible to all other portal users, though personal information fields remain hidden. If you would rather have your idea visible to only you and IBM then use the IBM Security Private Ideas Portal instead.

Please note: The purpose of the Ideas Portal is to tap the creativity of the IBM Security community so that we can enhance our products for everyone! If you need to report a defect or get help, please use our normal support channel. Click here to open a support ticket.

Implement Command Logging for RACDCERT Commands

It's my understanding that RACDCERT commands are not eligible for Command Logger, because the command envelope IRREV01 is not called for RACDCERT Commands. Since Command Verifier does not process RACDCERT commands, then Command Logger does not record RACDCERT Commands.

    Hi Linnea, we will open a request with RACF. No further action needed on your end.

    Question, on my Case the IBM Rep says I probably need to also open an idea for RACF zOS group to provide a command exit for RACDCERT. I would have thought that would be implied/included in zCMD-I-77.

    What are your recommendations? Leave it with this idea, or open a 2nd idea?
