IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

WKC data is not protected in a sensitive project

The data what we tested in assets are as follows.

data from WKC in a project

As a project editor, I can use the data without viewing the Patient ID, because I don't have the authorization to view it. So, it is a very important and helpful mechanism to cooperate with hospital or other institute with privacy concerns.

However, the protection function is only supported in WKC and data refinery.

In refinery, the data are perfect to be protected as follows.

data in Refinery

* In AutoAI, the data can't be found in the data list.

data in AutoAI

* In modeler flow, I can clearly view the real ID in preview mode.

data in modeler flow

* In notebook, I can clearly view the real ID after reading the data.

data in notebook

So, this function is not acceptable if the purpose of WKC is to protect the data without viewing the real content for the other users.

Please make this function work in all of the project components.

    Hi Susanna,

    I believe the idea is WKC can export the table 'after' sensitive protection.

    In this way, clients view the table get what they see. Not the original table that they are not authenticated to access.

    Hi Susanna

    May I ask the OM who is responsible for this?

    Hi Taichi,

    Although the policy enforcement capability is part of WKC, the areas you mentioned (Auto AI, modeler flow and notebook) are features from Watson Studio and WML. Any enforcement will need to be implemented in that service. Hence, I'm transferring the idea to the Studio team.
