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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
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 notifications 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.
Need to be able to specify columns when inserting data in a table from a card.
At the moment, the DB adapter does an INSERT INTO table_name VALUES (..., which implies that we insert into all columns.This makes the map depending on the table design, and in out case, where multiple projects may update the tables, create confli...
Database Interface Designer should take care of all character sets, and not only the obsolete ones
Currently (in 18.104.22.168 and earlier), Database Interface Designer cannot be told to use character sets other than the "historic" ones.It is of course possible to convert the type trees later, but would be better not to have to.
support milliseconds in datetime
A lot of operations track times to the millisecond. This request is to add millisecond support to ITX.
add finctions to support Timezone in ITX
ITX lacks in Timezone based functions. we require functions to support 1) get current time in timezone2) get current time in UTC3) covert input timestamp to timezone.
Simplification of mapping partitioned type
Mapping a partitioned type or its partition does not give the same result, data can be lost when partition has release character as shown in the code sample attached.Actually mapping the partitioned type does not mean "map the partition that was i...
Need a "LOOKDOWN" function to find the last object in a series
WTX provides a LOOKUP function to find the first occurence in a series matching a given condition.In some case, it is needed to find the LAST one, and "reversing" the series is not always practical (e.g. : if you want both the first and last objec...
Support for streams in all adapters
New adapters like Excel and PDF are introduced. However they don't have options to stream data to them. This request is to enhance adapters so they support streams by default.
deploy (Integration Flow Designer + sdeploy.exe) only support FTP. Can support for SFTP be added ?
We are working with WTX 8.4.1 with launcher on AIX. To deploy from Windows to AIX only FTP is supported in both sdeploy.exe and Integration Flow Designer. It would be more secure if SFTP could be chosen as protocol for transferring .mmc,.msl and ...
format string parser
Please add a parser/validator of format srings into the compiler, so that WTX developers are being notified of invalid format strings that won't work in the WTX engine.
Make the "use ellipses button" a display option
The Map Designer provides a way to use ellipses when draggin'-n-dropin' type references into a rule.This is very nice to make rules more compact and usually improves readability. However, "getting back" to the referenced type is sometimes an issue...
