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.
Add environment_guid as a environment variable when running jobs
When running a jupyter notebook in CP4D, Watson Studio Project, there is an environment variable called environment_guid. This is a very handy environment variable as it contains the guid of the environment associated with the jupyter notebook when running.
Using this environment variable and the Watson Data API it is possible to retrieve the number of CPU and memory available in the environment. This is important information when developing multiprocessing scripts.
If you schedule the notebook as a job in Watson Studio, the environment variable environment_guid is no longer available. Is it possible to make this environment variable also available when running notebooks as a job?
