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.

Ability to download / upload Custom Palette

User develops Custom Global Palettes (Manage > Customization > Palette > New custom palette) in DEV environment and creates reports using the custom palettes.

User exports new reports from DEV to UAT.

Custom Palettes are not included in the Export Deployment unless a Full Content Store Export including User Account Information is done.

There is no way for the Custom Palette to be downloaded or exported from DEV and imported into UAT and PROD.

User must re-create the custom palettes in each environment.

    A temporary solution is to edit the content store manually. All you need to do is create the styles in the new environments, and then copy a specific string over from one server to the other.

    This short database query will guide you:

    SELECT P3.VALUE AS LABEL,

    N.NAME AS REF_NAME,

    P89.*

    FROM

    dbo.CMOBJECTS O

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CMCLASSES C ON O.CLASSID = C.CLASSID

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CMOBJNAMES N ON O.CMID = N.CMID AND N.ISDEFAULT = 1

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CMOBJPROPS3 P3 ON O.CMID = P3.CMID AND P3.PROPNAME = 'ScreenTip'

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CMOBJPROPS89 P89 ON O.CMID = P89.CMID

    WHERE

    C.CLASSID = 263

    The string is contained in dbo.CMOBJPROPS89.CONTENT.
