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.

Facilitate CDC Management Console metric's seletion

The selection of a set of metrics for one, ans specially, more than one subscription is tedious.

We should be able to (all would be perfect, any would be good):
- Be able to pre-select more than one subscription and activate the same set of metrics for all the selected at the same time
- Be able to check/uncheck whole groups (Log Parser, Source DataStore, Single Scrape, Target database etc.) . This could save a lot of clicks in case we want to select most options in a group.
- Be able to check/uncheck all (global). If we want to select most of the metrics it would be much quicker to select all, and unselect some.
- Be able to "save" a set of metrics as a "custom selection" and later apply it to new situations, or at least have some predefined options that can be applied quickly
