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.

Please unify the TLS version when creating a JDBC connection to the DB.

The version of TLS allowed when creating a connection in the control plane of CPD and when creating a connection in Flow Designer is different.

* Customers who have problems this time are using postgreSQL.

Connection in CPD control plane: TLS 1.2 Allowed

Connection with Flow Designer: TLS 1.1 Allowed

Please increase the types of JDBC connectors supported or fix the above part.

    Thanks for submitting this. Our team is requesting more detailed information and commented as follows. "For Connectivity TLS 1.2 should be supported. It is not clear what is being referred as JDBC Connection and to which Data sources. Need additional details on what is being referred to as the inconsistency. Is this related to how connections are created in DFD? Please provide additional detail."
