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.
I would like to maintain a set of Python functions and classes in a separate model/script, then do an import from that module in a notebook and DO4DSX model. Use cases: * I want to move complex function definitions out of my notebook. The functions take up a lot of screen space in the notebook and are not that relevant for the main topic of the notebook. * I have multiple notebooks in the same project that want to share code. * I have a set of functions/classes I want to re-use among multiple projects of possibly multiple users This code is not stable and may need frequent updates and additions. Therefore, it would not be feasible to require the assistance of a DSX administrator to update the module. Currently, DSX does support a custom module/script. It can be uploaded to the scripts directory and in DSX 1.2 it can be viewed and edited. In addition, DSX supports the notion of a Library project to which other projects have access to. Notebooks can import from a module in either the local scripts directory or a directory in the shared Library project. But the DO4DSX model based on such notebook fails to run due to a failure to import the module.
In particular, I would like to create a set of re-usable functions that support DO4DSX optimization models. Without this feature, I would have to copy and paste a large block of code in the top cells of a notebook. This is ugly and difficult to maintain.
