IBM Sterling Ideas

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.

Support for JSON schema : natively and type tree Importer

Currently the ITX product is designed to be used with JSON data, and not the JSON schema (Native and Importer).

Example : "age": { "$ref": "secondary.json#/properties/age"}

With more systems adapting to JSON based message transformation and use swagger definitions to define data model, the use ofJSON schemas is becoming quite common.

Currently the type tree importer or the Native schema works only with JSON data and there is lot of work involved to create a JSON out of the JSON schems file.

The ask is to support the automatic import of the JSON schema from data & through importer natively by ITX.

How will this idea be used?

This idea would significantly decrease the time spent on creating a single JSON file out of JSON schema and also standardizes the process of using the ITX Native schema.

Also the chance of a manual error while creating a JSON is high. Future schema changes would also mean lot of rework. Having ITX to manage it automatically would help a lot.
