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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting 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 notifications 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.
Provide a read-only role for the Partner Repository

Provide a way for sponsor standard users to roll out an activity
We need to have our sponsor standard users to be able to roll out activities, while still being able to control their participation in a rolled out activity based upon the custom role they have been assigned to.
Perhaps there could be a way, simi...
Systems and System-related objects should be visible in the Portal UI.
There should be a way to view a system, its extensions, and profile references in the PEM Portal. This would provide users with easy access to this information as a reference when a campaign is not currently open for that system. It would also giv...
Increase PEM Code list / Generic data field length
Add new optional arguments available across all email templates
When customizing e-mail templates, it would be extremely beneficial to have specific data available as arguments/variables to add to any of the e-mail templates (if they make sense in the context of the email). These include: Partner company/organ...
Update Get Partner API to Include UserId as Input
Since you are not allowed to add emails across two accounts, it would be good if you could check if an email is associated with any partner already. The Get Partner API does not allow you to search by userid as an input. Adding userid as a input w...
Straight up HTTP calls from PEM as opposed to only REST / XML API calls
Being able to do form posts or just any basic HTTP call will allow PEM to integrate with more systems.
Feature to close bulk PEM Portal and Provisioner Activities
Currently, each activity or rollout has to be manually and separately closed. During development, Unit Testing, and UAT cycles lots of activities are created. There should be a way in PEM to bulk close Portal and Provisioner activities based on fi...
Popup on Partner "Start task" when Campaign Waiting on Sponsor Action
It is not clear to partner's when a campaign is waiting for Sponsor's to complete approvals/tasks. Currently, the partner is able to click the "Start task" button, but nothing happens. The icon at the top of the screen is small and not obvious to ...
Click to show Password
Within the out of the box onboarding activities the password is display in plain text. Instead, there could be text that says "Click to show password" and when clicked, the password is un-hidden.
