The option to generate documents for question answering by web crawling does not work for us as we recently disabled basic auth and now require SAML. Would be great if the web crawler feature supported SAML.
Many times, customer assumes that WDS will apply enrichments to the question also and use that to help in search. This is not currently the case. WDS need to have a way where by default (or by config) NLU enrichments can be applied on the question...
Display document status for collection on Watson Discovery UI
Currently there is no way to track document progress for a collection on Watson Discovery UI. Sometimes documents are stuck for hours and there is no way to figure out what is happening in the background. I think there should be a very simple and ...

Applying annotation to documents ingested into WDS using a custom WKS model allows the client to tag content based on their own vocabulary/domain. Currently WKS model can't be configured with the normalizeEntities flag (like Alchemy used to be) an...
Currently there is no simple or interactive way to delete documents within the WDS toolkit making it difficult for non-developers to manage the WDS corpus without having to use curl/sdk/api. While it is easy to upload individual documents via drag...

All collections must have completely the same ranking as each other.
For that reason, we need to clone collections of Watson Discovery from one environment to another.
Allow custom IDs for documents when adding them to the discovery index
Whenever we face discovery setups with multiple stages or environments, its very hard and time consuming to manage multiple copies of the same document as discovery generates a new, different ID for each document in each collection. It would make ...
