IBM Sterling Ideas

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.


Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit CCD-I-4 Perform checkouts before actual upgrade.

Pre-Upgrade Check Merged

I felt that before doing Actual Upgrade if there is some feature to do below checks:-

  • OS is compatible with the New CD Version.

  • Server has sufficient Space for the Upgrade.

  • User which will run the upgrade has sufficient permission to run the upgrade.

  • All the config file are correct by doing Config Checks.

  • Required PORTS are open or not.

  • Any other checks which CCD does after upgrade which can be performed prior.

This will be used to do pre-check before applying the actual upgrade in the server.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us. I've reviewed it with my team and we agree it would be helpful to perform some additional pre-upgrade checks before trying to deploy an upgrade with CCD. Some of your suggestions will likely be possible while others might face technical challenges however. I'll accept this request in concept however and we'll look to identify which portions are possible as we look to move it into the roadmap moving forward.
