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.

support all Authentication types supported by each data source

The data platform needs to provide support for all Authentication types supported by various data sources, such as SharePoint for example. Authentication types need to be exposed and selectable at the time a data source is defined since each source application might use a different Authentication type.

    Unfortunately without a more detailed request, we cannot plan to consider this enhancement request.

    I'm happy to reassess this when you provide additional details on the type of authentication you would like to get.

    Thank you for submitting this proposal, to improve our products. Unfortunately, we would need more details on the types of authentication you are expecting.

    Thanks for any details you can provide, in case this request is still relevant.
