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.

    In DSM there is the option to share under various functions, such as SQL Editor Saved Scripts, Connection Profiles, Filters in QWT, and Tuning Jobs. Currently you can have no sharing, or you can share with the public. We would like, in addition, to be able to share with groups and individuals. Sharing with public is a risk we do not want to introduce on some functions. Refer to RFE 116685 for group level request.

    Use case: A user sets up and saves a query under Run SQL (see attached). The query is then shared. Now everyone who has access to DSM can access that query.

    DBusiness justification: Some options, such as queries accessing sensitive data should not be shared across the entire DSM user base. The capability should exist to share such queries with users on a need to know basis.
