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.

JOIN keys in JOIN stage should be able to be used even if each fields/columns have different names in each.

When users use Join stage for TableA and TableB, if each join keys have different column name (for example, each join key’s column names are col1a in Table A and col1b in Table B), it goes to error.

Our customer strongly requests us to improve so that they can use join stage even if each fields/columns name are different.

    Two columns types need to be same, no restrictions on the column names to be same. Please elaborate on the use case with example.
