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.

RAVE charts need Properties to support passing additional data in drill through

In a Cognos Report Studio report, we typically provide drill through from a chart to the same report, or to a different report. We typically need to pass several parameters as part of the drill through, including fields that are not present in the chart. This can be done with standard Cognos charts by using the Properties property to "check" the fields in the query that need to be available to the drill through.

RAVE charts, however, do not support this capability and appear to only have the fields in the chart available for drill through. This severely limits the drill through capability of a RAVE chart, making it nearly useless as a drill source.

Active Reports are able to add additional data items to the RAVE for variable setting purposes, so supporting this for drill purposes doesn't seem to far from what is already there.

Please update RAVE visualizations to support either the Properties property to check data items, or something similar to active reports. This would allow us to use data items that don't affect the chart within the drill through definition.

    We will not be adding this to the 11.0 visualizations. This is planned for 11.1 visualizations
