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.

Allow configuration to specify hlq for MMAP and MFL datasets

Currently, when users are creating a Web Service directory, they are prompted to provide a High Level Qualifier for the MMAP dataset.  If they provide their own ID, DVM will successfully create the dataset, but does not have access to it resulting in authorization errors.

We would like to be able to provide a hlq in the IN00 file that must be used when creating the MMAP and MFL datasets.  The Web Services Directory Wizard would then be changed to build dataset using following format: ..MMAP.  Given that the dataset qualifiers are limited to 8 characters, the wizard would need to have text boxes for both the qualifier and the actual directory.
