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.

Add more columns to table

PEM Dialog UI has the Table component, which helps in creating tables in the UI.

As per default, the Table creation is limited to 11 columns.


We have various scenarios, where we need to fill into more than 11 columns.

So, we request  for an enhancement to allow more columns into the table.

    Duplicate of PEM-I-141. We are reviewing to determine the UI ramifications and whether the activity framework will support this.

    Hi Greg,

    As per our use case, our API gives more than 11 values to be populated in table for the user display. In this case, we don't see any other option to achieve this in PEM. Kindly let us know.

    Current table display over 11 columns would make the display difficult to review. Will need to consider other alternatives over just adding some additional columns.
