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.

Define AVRO namespace by configuration

This enhancement is raised by this support issue

In general we like to define the AVRO namespace in the Management Console. The current produced namespace "value.SOURCEDB.C0023DB26DA1" is not JAVA best practice regarding package naming and in addition environment dependent which forces use to workaround (e.g. reflection...).

    IBM update.

    Thanks for filing this requirement. We think that the request is valid but the work is not prioritized at this point. To help us prioritize in the future, we will look for more user feedback on similar requirements.

    In the meantime, please use the available approach/workaround.
