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.
WTX/ITX Oracle adapter - automatic failover implementation
We are using the WTX/ITX Oracle adapter for our connection with an Oracle Exadata database.
In case of database failure, Exadate switch automaticly to the second cluster node.
>> Problem :
At the switch time, all running maps faile w...
Enhance ITX importer for ddf
Enhacning the ITX imorter to be able to generate type tree from ddf or native usage of ddf would be an useful advantage. Many a times migrating from Sterling mapper to ITX is not straight forward when there is no industry standard being used.
The V10 WebUI should have impact anlaysis
Since ITX projects are storing artifacts (maps, schemas, connections, variablets) it 'knows' which maps use which schemas, etc.
It would be very useful to be able to do impact analysis. How many maps use a schema? How many places is a variable re...
Display Starting position of the field in field level properties for "FIXED, IMPLICIT" group/file.
In ITX, when the group is defined as fixed and implicit, to identify a field position most of the time we must sum up the field length of previous fields when there is no layout. This would simplify the identification of field in positional files.
Maps with JSON output cards are building very slowly
I have some maps in the design studio. They take 15 minutes each to build. While the build is occurring you can see exactly what is being checked in each map - that's how slow the build is. I have never come across this before. Normally you can't ...
ITXA - Option to turn off writing to Correlation_Set while using SPETransformationService
Our BP calls SPETransformationService for HIPAA data translation only. When our BP runs in sync mode (zero persistence), we observed many records created in correlation_set table, about 3 to 6 records per object_id, with names "Map", "MapVersion",...
data anonymization/masking (typetree attribute + test mode)
There are 2 requirements that lead to this idea:
1.) external requirements like GDPR force us to anonymize/pseudonymize data in non-production environments2.) A-B-testing would be much easier if we can mask dynamic attributes (e.g. timestamps)
JSON Native schema - Enabling Mandatory Fields
Currently, when using the native JSON type tree, it is not possible to make elements to be mandatory. We will not always use JSON importer to create type tree and there are cases where we use JSON file directly as native schema. This enhancement w...
Adding the ability to get all sheet names contained in an Excel fileadding the ability to get all sheet names contained in an Excel file
We want to convert multiple sheet excel documents to other formats.
Compliance Check map to include the CTX segments in the 999 Negative Acknowledgement
the usage of the CTX segment in the 999 would utilized in the LOOP ID - 2100 - AK2/IK3 ERROR IDENTIFICATION. where the Business Unit Identifier can correctly show the transaction error. TR3 rules state "Required when the error reported in this IK3...
