IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

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.

The correct URL for entering your ideas is:

}ApplicationSecurity blank means NONE

At the moment, }CubeSecurity, }DimensionSecurity, }ElementSecurity_XXX, and even }CellSecurity, blank is NONE, or no access.

However, for }ApplicationSecurity, it is requiring administrator to populate NONE in order to make the application no access to end users.

This is quite troublesome for larger models, where it might have more than 6 folders, and maybe 3 layers per root folder, and having over 100 security groups, populating this grid of data takes a long time and unnecessary if making blank as NONE.

Right now on some model, just to populate NONE already taking over 3 hours of running time (no special logic) because the model has many applications built on it and require security control over it.

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

Should make blank means NONE for }ApplicationSecurity, if require to cater for models that already assumed blank <> NONE, maybe provide another parameter on tm1s.cfg allowing administrator to choose how they want }ApplicationSecurity to behave.

Idea Priority Urgent
Priority Justification Security Configuration is important, but should able to do this smarter and less troublesome, right now spending over 3 hours to populate this cube is really unnecessary and also blocking other schedule jobs from running

    This will simplify security assignments and be a great help.
