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.

3000 data item restriction in dashboard visualisations

I see reference in the documentation for dashboards that dashboards will only visualize up to 3000 data points regardless of the visualization type.

Is there any way to extend this value as this limitation makes dashboarding against data prohibitive (especially in relation to other tools such as qlik, tableau and microsoft).

I understand that performance can be compromised by increasing this - but this value is preventing customers doing anything useful within their dashboards.
If it is hardcoded - could we not have the ability to increase the value on the server-side at the users own risk of impacting performance ?

    it's mid-2021 and ...? Cognos 11.2 still have waring ... 

    IBM Cognos developers doing something? the tool is useless with such cuts for most customers. Other tools have not (or have never had) such limitations for a long time.
