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.
Rollout API - Feature parity with UI
Currently the Rollout API can only do a rollout to a list of 10 partners. It needs to have the same capabilities as the web UI: - Rollout to a group - Rollout based on attributes - Rollout to as many partners as needed - Add partners to existing r...
Improve JSON mapping
JSON handling is very static. The entire JSON structure must be predefined and we can only string-substitue into values. When API calls require certain keys to be included or excluded depending on the operation, this means we must create multiple ...
Upload UI component - improve user experience
The user experience of the Upload button in UI dialogs could be improved greatly.
Currently, not counting the browser's file-selection window, it takes 5 mouse clicks and typing in a name to upload a new file:
1) Click the Upload button in t...
Upload UI component - make file details available for mapping
In a Dialog sceen, when a partner uploads a file using the Upload UI component, the only values available for mapping to an API or XSLT are the file contents in plain-text or Base64 encoded format. We should be able to map the file details to our ...
Adding a description Variable to the activity Roll Out email template
when an activity is rolled out, there is a field that proposes to enter a description of the activity. I would like to bring that description to the email we currently send out to each client when we have assign an activity. This email templates a...
Dynamic show/hide UI dialog elements
When trying to make a UI dialog more dynamic, we can currently use labels mapped to XSLT output to generate appropriate text for a partner. E.g. a screen which can show Test, Prod, or both Test and Prod server details in one dialog. Or Inbound, Ou...
API for Group management
There is currently no API to create or manage Groups. There should be capability to: Create Group Edit Group (Name, Description) Assign/Unassign Attribute Values
Parallel Executions of a Shared Activity
In the case where a maintenance activity (ex. user account password reset) is shared to a partner account, we need the ability for multiple partner admins or users on that acccount to execute the same shared activity simultaneously. Currently, PEM...
Allow Static Reply-to Email Address
In managing campaigns through PEM, it is best to contact partners through a group email so that if one person is out of office the queries by partners are not delayed. PEM has the ability to hard code the sender to a specific email, but does not h...
It would be better if we can
-> had a failure handling option in PEM (like on fault in SI)
-> call another activity from one activity
