on Februar 15, 2017 Daniel Braun, the owner and mastermind of this website passed away unexpectedly. This is an unbelievable shock and loss for everybody.
There has been an interesting addition to the Micro Focus Software Community on March 12th 2018. The new Idea Exchange portal offers an easy way to share your ideas on how to improve Data Protector and influence the product future. This special part of the Software Community is moderated by product management and you can directly submit your own feature requests or vote on existing requests to speed up their implementation.
The Idea Exchange will replace the existing Enhancement Request process via the SSO portal to make the whole process more transparent for the end user. So if you have urgent requests I strongly encourage you to submit them via the Idea Exchange, vote or simply join the discussion. It is open for all existing customers with an active SAID linked to their Software Passwort account.
