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 product management 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 notification 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.

WKC - Multi select option in connected Asset Import in the catalog view
If we add connected assets to a catalog we can only select one asset and have to provide a name for that asset. Usually we import hundreds of tables and this seems quite painful. We would prefer a experience where we can select multiple tables, fi...
WKC - -support the concept of group to assign roles
Currently only single user can be authorized in CPD. As with WKC many user may access the platform and have to be administered. Synchronizing groups from LDAP and assigning roles to a group wil be requested.

Current behaviour: you can comment on a data class within WKC but the steward of that class doesn't get notified (bell on main landing page).User would expect that a steward gets notified when they comment on one of their assets/artifacts. For exa...
