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.

Extended and granulated access security for technical and custom assets in IGC

We are implementing Data Governance solution in an organization with many entities and need an option to secure the access to technical and custom assets from users in different legal entities. At the moment, there is such option just for Glossary items (Categories and terms), but all users with a role different from Basic User can view or even edit (depends on the role) all other assets.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? When this suite is imlemented in large organizations it will require extended access and security settings, exceeding the current ones.
Priority Justification Idea is rankeg High, because it is related to complying security requirements in our project of implementing IS with the customer.
Client Name UCB Bulgaria
How should it work?

There should be an option to restrict access to technical assets and their drill-down to different users/groups, just like it is implemented for Glossary items.

    SP2 of Information Server was released, but this functionality is not implemented yet. When can we expect it? What was meant by "next release"?

    Thanks for your suggested idea. We are looking to incorporated finer grained permissions across all Catalog Assets next year, in addition to securig the properties on those assets. In our next release, we will extend such permision to all Governance Assets, including Terms, Policies & Rules.
