IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Workspace Watson Assistant

Watson Skill Tooling should provide option to import or copy paste dialog nodes

We publish Chatbot watson workspace every release with new dialog nodes , entity & intents to support new features. Each of our customers have their own instance of chatbot / workspace and they also add new capability to this bot by creating new dialog nodes in workspace.

In order to consume new features our customer goes through error prone process of recreating the dialogs in the workspace. They follow one of the below steps based on amount of customization done in workspace.

  • Import new workspace and add dialog nodes from old workspace that were added as part of customization.

  • Use old workspace and follow the documentation to add new dialog nodes

While adding intents and entity is easy adding new dialogs, slots variables etc is very difficult.

Solution : Watson assistant tooling can provide option to import dialog node/ copy paste dialog node along with child nodes. It should also give option to fix any missing node (referred in jump or otherwise)

Who would benefit from this IDEA? BMC and customers of BMC

    Mitch, we would like the ability to do this in the Watson Assistant tooling. Could this idea be re-opened. It would be very helpful to those clients like us who create many chatbots for various end Use Cases.

    You should investigate the append:true flag in the updateWorkspace API, we unfortunately don't have resources to implement this feature in the tooling at this time.
