Digital Business Automation Ideas

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 enhance a 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 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 notifications 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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on premises, containers, on cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Automation - incl Business Automation Studio, Business Automation Insights

  • Business Automation Workflow (BAW) - incl BAW, Business Process Manager, Workstream Services, Business Performance Center, Advanced Case Management

Admin Feature - Quicker Access Administration

Admin must go through many screens to add users to various spaces or groups. Often users want mirrored access to their co-workers as well. This requires a call back to the user and their coworker or for Admin to comb the db to determine where their coworker has access and then to add the new user accordingly.

    Reposting as my previous comment does not seem to be populating.

    Yes we use all available tool features and I still need to make this request, in addition to the report request 71539.

    Neither the group or inheritance option addresses the issue in a full measure and come with additional concerns.

    Thanks for your consideration

    There are a couple of options for simplifying the administration of space-level permissions in Blueworks Live that you may find helpful.....1) There is a checkbox on the Users tab of a subspace that basically lets you inherit the same permission structure that the parent space has ("Inherit the same list as the parent space XYZ"), 2) By setting up a user group that consists of users that you want to have similar space permissions, you can simply add the user group to the spaces you want them to have access to.....rather than having to add all of the individual users. Have you tried either of these approaches?
