Search Interface


Select a value in any selection box.
Note: Only one value can be selected at a time. If a component you are searching for does not appear in the selection box after a criteria was chosen, that environment is not supported at this moment.
You may submit a SCORE/RPQ to IBM to request approval. To submit a SCORE/RPQ, please contact your IBM Representative.
Once a value is selected, a progress message will display while all the selection boxes are being repopulated. Press the "Submit" button when configuration results count is equal to or less than 100 to display results.
A summary page will be displayed shortly after this.
