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.

Object Level Security at Table and Field Level for Data Modules

Data Modules do not currently have a way to specify object level security at the table or field level the way Framework Manager does. You should be able to set which tables and fields a particular user or group of users is able to see. There are many situations in which this is a critical component to being able to use Data Modules for large scale reporting.

    This would be a value to the team. Would like to see an two options though

    1. Hide the field, and reports throw and error if user without permissions runs the report/dashboard

    2. Replace the value in the field with some text eg. 'Access Denied' when user doesn't have permissions. Report/Dashboard runs but with replacement text.

    Understand that this has been added for data modules based on data servers, would be great to add something similar for data modules based on data sets
