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

Post 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 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 needs to allow specification of access policies at the folder level within a data asset

a) We need to be able to set an access policy for a whole table that might be represented by multiple parquet files in a folder. b) We need to be able to set an access policy for all the files in a bucket.
almost 4 years ago in Watson Knowledge Catalog 2 Planned for future release

WKC recognizes multiple files in a bucket as a single data asset,

We need this because we want to be able to enter metadata only and access policies once for all files that comprise a data source. Specific examples: a) Uploading multiple pdfs needs to be able to store pdfs for a particular geo in a folder. Th...

Removing a data asset from a project or catalog does not delete it from COS

Whenever a data asset gets removed from either a Watson Studio Project or a Watson Knowledge Catalog the actual file is not removed from the underlying Cloud Object Storage bucket. The result is that there will be a lot of unreferenced files in C...

Add from Catalog sometimes adds Connection and Asset, sometimes just Asset

We noticed that when adding a Data Asset from a Catalog into a Watson Studio Project it sometimes just adds the Data Asset into the project while sometimes it adds the Data Asset and a Connection into the project. It's not obvious what causes the...
