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.

Show meaningful error messages (when there is no access to platform connections)

  • Currently notebooks can not be started, when there is a storage volume from platform connections in the project and the user does not have access to platform connection

  • The error message shown is "Notebook could not be loaded", which does not provide any insights for troubleshooting.

  • Actually the error is thrown when looking into the logs:

  • [403] GET https://internal-nginx-svc:12443/v2/connections (506 ms), qs={"project_id":"44715e9b-0cb6-4555-8fbe-1f48ecd77de2","entity.datasource_type":"9f30e3c3-b854-4144-b5c3-98b7a835dc79","entity.flags":"personal_credentials"}, body={"trace":"7zaznuks7ebr7s7wxjvefl2x5","errors":[{"code":"not_authorized","message":"Permission to the Asset API is denied.

    Consider going beyond just reporting a meaningful error message to allowing the Jupyter notebook's runtime to start even in the presents of some inaccessible “Connections” for a given Notebook collaborator (user). This permits the Notebook to programmatically determine which Connection amongst many may be available for use by any given user running the Notebook.
