IBM Data and AI RegTech 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

Post 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.

Checkboxes next to grid items should not appear if user does not have associate permission

In 8.2.0.0, when you have an association grid view on a task view (e.g. Associated Processes grid on an Entity Task view), users would need an Associate action button in order to associate or disassociate objects.

In 8.2.0.3, rather than using the Associate button to disassociate objects, users are now given checkboxes next to each item in the grid. Then users can checkoff items, and a "Remove" button appears that allows them to disassociated the checked items.

This is fine for users with Associate permission.

The problem is that for users without Associate permission, the Associate button does not appear (which is expected), but the checkboxes still appear next to each grid item. Furthermore, the user can checkoff items and the Remove button appears. When the user tries to click on Remove, they get an error saying they don't have permission to perform this operation (which is expected since they do not have associate access to the object).

This request is to not show the checkboxes next to the grid items when the user does not have Associate permission. This is more inline with previous behavior that took a preventative approach (by not giving user the option to attempt the disassociation).
