Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 a 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.
If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portal, please send email describing the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org for resolution. For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit ibm.com/ideas.

Healthcheck endpoints (used by load balancer) in all subsystems of API Connect v10 for VMware
We are looking for servers health-checks that will be used by external loadbalancer to determine single server "health" - similarly as we did in APIC V5. Full description is provided in support case TS005477188.
Data replication between 2 Analytics Subsystem clusters
In APIC V5 we have ACTIVE-ACTIVE setup for our DataPower(DP) servers (2 DP each DC, 4 in total) and 2 Management Servers (1 each DC) so in case 1, if whole DC goes down we are still able to record all the API events using other DC. All DataPower s...

API providers publish products into catalog spaces mostly using plans with approval. While the approval workflow on Space level works as expected, there seems to be no history of subscription approvals or rejects available in the UI. API providers...
