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.

Add Ability To Configure Where Launcher Logs Are Written

We are starting to use the Launcher image to deploy and run Launcher in containers. The Launcher Logs are written to <itx_install_dir>/logs by default, and there is no way to change where these logs are written. So, when the pod/container is destroyed, the Launcher Logs are not persisted and we lose this history.

What would help is a setting within the "dtx.ini" file where we could choose to write these logs to a Persistent Volume Claim so we can retain them.

    I already had a support case for this (TS004626050). What is in the PDF would work if we were starting our container using a CLI, but we use a web console. Rex Chan and I came up with a workaround involving creating a mount point. However, a more straightforward approach would be to configure this in the "dtx.ini" file, as we do with other ITX-related paths.

    Refer to the PDF document included with the container for the archive file on how to configure this capability. If additional infomration is needed, please log a support incident
