IBM Security Guardium Ideas Portal

This portal will be removed

In IBM’s effort to continue to streamline and simplify navigation for our customers, this Ideas portal will be shut down on February 28, 2023. We would ask that you use the main IBM Ideas portal at or the IBM Security-specific portal at to review, vote for existing ideas, or add new ideas.

Please add TEST_DETAILS_EXCEPTIONS and TEST_EXCEPTIONS to definitions export

We recently had to promote our backup CM as primary and then convert back to original CM. In doing so, it did not save our TEST_DETAIL_EXCEPTIONS. We had to restore from backup to an alternate system and then perform a mysql dump with Guardium root to restore the hundreds of exceptions that we have. Most customers don't have root. Having the GUI option through defintions export is the safest option.
