Restore Drop Down Menu for CDWS

In CDWS 6.0.0.3 a drop down menu was present so that the user could select a remote node.  In version 6.0.0.5 this functionality was replaced by a search box where the user has to unplug the first three letters of the node name.  The user may not always be aware of the remote nodes that are available, so they may not know which three letters to enter.  Restore the drop down menu so that the user can see all of the remote nodes that are available.  The search box can be utilized as well for users who know the remote node name they want to use.

How will this idea be used?

CDWS is supposed to be more user friendly.  However, removing the drop down menu for remote nodes makes this product less user friendly in my opinion.  In CDWS 6.0.0.3 a drop down menu was present so that the user could select a remote node.  In version 6.0.0.5 this functionality was replaced by a search box where the user has to unplug the first three letters of the node name.  The user may not always be aware of the remote nodes that are available, so they may not know which three letters to enter.  Restore the drop down menu so that the user can see all of the remote nodes that are available.  The search box can be utilized as well for users who know the remote node name they want to use.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I'm pleased to announce that we've restored the drop-down menu in CDWS v6.0.0.5_iFix01 and subsequent releases. Please visit our Fix Central portal to pull down maintenance which has this functionality. Thank you very much for this request and please don't hesitate to use this tool again in the future if you see other areas where improvements could be made.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
