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.

Make FTM IP Purge Utility OCP Compatible

Purge Utility delivered with FTM IP can be configured using a Cron job to trigger it run and purge transactions in FTM Database. Since FTM IP/DP has been configured on OCP now, we expect FTM Purge Utility to be OCP Compatible. As of now Utility is delivered with properties file and a file to store Database credentials on disk encrypted with IBM encryption method. We want FTM Purge Utility to be OCP compatible so that it can be configured in OCP Pod and scheduled there for transaction purge in FTM Database. We are also looking forward to source ID and passwords from Vault/Secret rather than saving the same details in a file on a disk (which is the current setup) and a security concern in the institution. We would also like to source all the transaction/Batch/Transmission properties from Config maps in OCP rather than a file on the disk. Current FTM IP Purge utility is not compatible with OCP where our product is configured and running with the exception of the Data base.
