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.

Enhance Autonomics Console Execution History Panel

The Autonomics Console Execution History Panel (HAA$ADEH) currently does not display the name of the maintenance window that is associated with an Automation Tool Build execution or an Autonomics Director execution.     Currently, you have to manually drill down into each specific event  to see this information.  

It is important to see what maintenance window is associated with ether of these events and it would be very helpful to see this information at a glance.

There are multiple reasons why a customer can and would defined many separate maintenance windows.  For example, they may set up one maintenance window per major application system or database.  

Also, by displaying the name of the related maintenance window on this panel, the user would then  have the option to sort the displayed events by maintenance window name field.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Any user using the Autonomics features of the Automation Tool
How should it work?

The Autonomics Console Execution History Panel (HAA$ADEH) needs to be enhanced to display the name of the maintenance window that is associated with any Automation Tool Build execution and also any Autonomics Director execution.    The maintenance window name field is should be added in between the existing "Retcd" and "Start_TS" fields on the panel so that the user does not have to scroll right to see it.
