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.

S3 connector request for Datastage (TS003424088)

Using Infosphere Information Server 11.7.1. Service Pack 2, we noticed that we are unable to create a data connection for Amazon S3 in DataStage to a private endpoint (not the usual public Amazon endpoints).

We are unable to read/write information through a data stage job from a bucket. The same problem we have encoutered in IMAM also.

IBM Engineering team provided some development jars, and an extra variable was added in Administrator Client, through PMR (Case TS003424088), in order to solve the problem, but an enchancement to the product is nedeed.

On the IMAM side the environent variable was added to dsenv.

    Any news regarding this subject? (we were the requestors of the improvement)

    From our side this looks more like a bug not really like an improvement - somehow when you try to set up a new data connection using Amazon S3 connector either in IMAM or DataStage it redirects you to a default endpoint (

    Thank you!
