IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (

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:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Post your ideas

Jupyter notebook as a DO dashboard page

Similar to using a notebook as a source for optimization code, allow the user to write a notebook that contains visualization components for a dashboard page.
Ideally, have an ability per cell to hide the cell, the output or both from the dashboard. For instance through some new annotations (`#dd-hide`, `dd-hide-cell`, `dd-hide-cell-output`)
This would allow the user to include comments (markdown cells) or just the output of a cell (e.g. a graph, map, print statement) while hiding the code that generates the output.
The dashboard framework should load the inputs and outputs.
Use a annotation like `#dd-ignore` to filter out cells that are not relevant for the visualization

The gist of the idea is to be able to include certain types of charts and other output that:
a. Is not supported by the default set of available charts.
b. Require code to generate the output.

Examples of usage:
* Folium map visualizations. These are very rich interactive UIs that require a fair bit of coding. It is not realistic that this type of visualization will be able to be supported through some a chart-wizard without coding in Python.

    I agree - having this ability to bring in custom visualization would make the dashboards significantly more valuable, even if we start by just displaying two Folium maps side-by-side when comparing multiple scenarios.
