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.

Provide the Catalog Owner the ability to approve all assets to be published by federated administrators.

To facilitate sharing of content across enterprise organizations multiple teams will need the ability to publish assets. To ensure these assets meet the guidelines of the Catalog Owner and the organizations data policy there need to be oversight / approval for all assets proposed to be published in the Catalog. This ensures that the organization has legal right to share the asset, it's classified correctly, the license file is attached to the asset, and the access control policy is correct. It also facilitates consistency on meta data such as naming conventions, tagging conventions and descriptions. One potential approach could be a type of checkbox for the Catalog owner to select. If Selected all assets that are published by the other Catalog editors / administrators go into a staging location until approved by the Owner or their delegate.

    Thank you for this idea. We have plans for 2021 to introduce workflow around publishing assets to the catalog to satisfy this need.
