IBM Security Guardium Ideas Portal

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

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 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.


Post an Idea

To post a new idea - click on the "Add a new idea" button and select the appropriate capability area this idea relates to. Do provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request. If 'Guardium Data Protection' capability is selected, you will be prompted to select the category/product the idea relates to. If you are not sure of the category/product your idea would fall under, then select 'IBM Guardium Other' in the drop down list and proceed from there.


Please note: The purpose of the Ideas Portal is to tap the creativity of the Guardium Data Protection community so that we can enhance the product for everyone! If you need to report a defect or get help, please use our normal support channel. Click here to open a support ticket.

Collect DPS Install Data in Support MustGathers

I originally opened a ticket TS003126627 for the mustgather having the wrong DPS information in the ADMINCONSOLE.txt file. The tech said they didn't know why it was there but to open a RFE if "I" want the data in the mustgather and have it correct. I also suggest that IBM reach out to their Guardium support areas to find out what the most common requests for information are include those commands in the pertinent mustgathers.

Either way, it would make sense both for customer and IBM to include the DPS installed version in the support mustgather. This reduces the time wasted by support to follow-up with customers to include in their tickets. IBM should also not be putting information in to the mustgather that is not pertinent to the current versions. Also it would be helpful if the customer on the RFE site can paste the ticket number in the PMR ID field as we now call them tickets instead of PMRs and they have a different numbering scheme.

    This is now resolved. No need for future consideration.
