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.

Netcool Webgui widget

We have been using netcool for event management for long time. Before Webgui we were using WebTop. There was java based system of maps to create views/pages. Now in DASH we can use widget. Problem is, that we cannot create same view with lot of "buttons" which display count of events filtered behind button and change color based on highest severity fitered behind the button. Closes widget is "Value Status gauge" but we need quite more (50+) than recommended max 7 on page. Customer is strict on that.
higher number of active vidgets on page

severity color based on events not hard configured on widget.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customer
How should it work?

Goal is to have non java page with over 50 buttons showing number of events behind it and opening Event Viewer with filtered list of events. Color of the button should be of the hihest severity of active event behind the button.

For our customer is not negotiable to find different solution as they have been using old java based map as a page in previous version of netcool. And they are planning to switch from java.

Current workaround we use java script to display old java based map, which frees the customer from using java on their workstation, but we as administrators are unable to do any update of page withou java.

In attachment is DASH page exported page. Also we have and IBM Case on this for detailed description if needed. We were adviced within the case to make enrichment request as obviously currently there is not a solution which can help us.
Also I am not sure about how much of time would be needed if this will be develped as well as we are not strictly on clock with the issue so the date for completion which is required bellow is not really somthing what I can specify. I will put there end of the next month, but it is not strict due date.
