  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.

"Warning Diff_XX: When checking operator: Dropping component "[Column name]" because of a prior component with the same name."

In addition, because of this warning output as many as the number of columns in the joined tables, the log become hard to see when the compared table have many columns.

Thus, it should be added the function "managing message handlers" that has following function to CP4D UI.

・Promote to Warning: Promote an informational message to a warning message.
・Demote to Informational: Demote a warning message to become an informational one.


DFD should provide message handler feature.

When customer compared two tables by Diff Stage, a warning messages were output for each difference. If there are too many differences in comparing two tables, many warning message would also be output. (ex : If there are differences in 100,000 r...
