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.

Limiting the error mail only to report owner incase of SMTP error in report schedule [CNC-SDS-0335, CNC-SDS-0410]

Problem: -
The error mail is sent to all recipients added in schedule When there a report schedule failed due to SMTP error (CNC-SDS-0335, CNC-SDS-0410).

Example: -

I have scheduled an analysis studio report on daily basis at 9:00 AM. So daily I will be receiving my updated report to my email at 9:00 AM. My 30 colleagues requested me to add them in my report schedule so that my report can help them for the analysis. As per the request I have added my colleagues to email schedule. But when there is an SMTP failure in the schedule, all 30 users were receiving the error mail which is unacceptable. As a report owner, only I should get the error mail.

Workaround: -

Updated the SMTP rule provided by the IBM vendor. In contrast, the rule modification failed to provide the solution.





<smtpBehaviour name="invalidRecips">



<recipients sendToCurrentRecipients="false">






Proposed solution: -

To limit system to send error mails to the administrators/report owner or another specified mail receiver.

Benefits/value: -

At-least 100+ users/day were affected with error mails and causing inconvenience to the email recipients. The idea avoids inconvenience to the email recipients.
