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.

Load Metadata – change the default behaviour to “not selected checkbox” for the new tables

All new Tables receive by default a selected checkbox and therefore are being loaded by the next Load Metadata process, if they remain selected.

If a lot of new not relevant Tables are coming, it means, that all of them should be excluded manually. But it is not very practically, because it would be easier to add all new needed Tables at one time manually instead of examine all the selected Tables in the List trying to find out, if it is a new Table, which I do not need or it is an old/new Table what I need. It is dramatically, when I only need to reload metadata because of some new columns in some already loaded Tables. If I do not want to receive all new Tables within this operation as well, I should extra examine the whole List as described above. Moreover, when I would like to make this refresh from the Data module, I can’t exclude these additional not needed new Tables from there at all.
