Post 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 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.

Correct License Agreement report for showing Active Users when using SSO

The License Agreement report does not show the correct number of Active Users when using SSO. Since SSO is the most common used setting for Controller, this is a defect and must be corrected.

  • Is a Defect
Who would benefit from this IDEA? All Controller-customers using SSO
Priority Justification IBM requests Deloitte to perform audits and has created this report. It must work properly for all security-settings
Client Name 30 customers in NL. Lots more all over the world.
How should it work?

Correct the report. Since the Right-Users menu does show the correct number, the report must be changed to look at that setting. Not at theĀ  'Active' setting when using Native-security

    Discussed with one of the development leads, this definitely should be a support ticket and should work. Let's take communication directly now, e-mail me if you have any issues raising the case again.

    Hi Paul,

    I already created a case. 'Case TS002365958 - License Agreement report incorrect.

    The answer was that we needed to switch to 'Native' to get the correct data from the report. Therefore I asked for the new RFE-link. Since the Rights menu does show the correct number of Active users, the report is not looking at the correct place for the active users.

    Hi Peter, this seems more like it may be a potential defect, can you raise a skills case through the support system please?
