Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Source IP address filtering feature for "public" Watson services
Our company requires every external applications service to add an additional authentication method other than the apikey authentication. For example:
token based 2 factor authentication,
client certificate authentication or
source IP address filtering.
Of above 3 methods, source IP address filtering, which allows specific IP address ranges and only that IP address ranges to access Watson service instances, is the most ideal from the user perspective because it does not require a end users to authenticate every time they want to use a chatbot nor it does not require user administrator to set up client certifications.
Again, this is mandate feature for our company. I have also met a lot of our customers who have the similar requirement.
Lastly, please do not make this feature to premium plan exclusive because that would kill virtually all of our/customers use cases.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
