This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Watson Discovery uses stemming to identify valid matches. Based on our experience it appears that stemming is applied in both Natural Language Queries and also Discovery Language Queries. It seems to also enforced in phrase searching. This is usef...
Currently maximum document size, which can be processed by WD for CP4D is 32Mb. It is very small size limit considering any document which may have embedded images can be much larger. Even WEX limits were higher (up to 128Mb for WEX AC). Please co...
Currently we need to re-ingest documents to update any enrichment.
This is specifically not very practical when we have WKS model involved. If the model is refined & updated, we need to re-ingest the docs. This is very annoying for customers ...
Right now if you want to delete all documents, you either need to delete the collection (which could mean code changes to point to a new ID), or you need to write a script to delete every document one by one which is time consuming.
Allow an optional "Callback URL" in "Add Document" Discovery API request
We, frequently, write services to poll Discovery for a document's status after we POST a document for ingestion. If, within the request body, we could include a callback URL for Discovery to asynchronously POST a completion message to, we could cu...
When uploading a trained WKS model as machine learning enrichment, only entities are detected and indexed, but not subtypes (on WD for CP4D). Please also consider supporting subtypes in the planned real-time NLP feature.
We are using Watson Discovery v2.1.2 in CP4D and we see that a user added under “Manage users” for a WD instance with role “Admin” or “User” is able to not only access all project created by other users, but is also able to delete them. Our securi...
Allow user defined dictionary for Kuromoji tokenization use under Japanese
Requesting to allow users to define their list of user_dictionary words for the purpose of Kuromoji’s tokenizer. I understand that WDS uses Kuromoji underneath for Japanese language. A key function of Kuromoji as the morphological analyzer for Jap...
Timeout occurs when factor analysis is performed on a collection with many facets. If we can select and change the target facet and the target facet value (default 50) when performing factor analysis, we can avoid the problem of timeout.
This is a request from a customer who makes heavy use of connection analysis. When displaying a large number of facet values in connection analysis, the network graph becomes easier to read if the text color can be changed by facets. Also, for p...
