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.

Download in a single PDF more than one Data Lineage report

Hello,

We would like to be able to have in a single PDF file more than one Lineage Report. Currently we are able to run a Lineage Report and then save it in either PDF format or Excel. Our need is to be able to save in one PDF more than one Data Lineage Report.

Needed by Date Nov 1, 2020

    Hi,

    We're planning to support this 2H 2021. The reason why it's a year out is that we're spending the next 6 months building out a completely new data lineage service, which will take some time to get right before we can build more enhancements. I hope your clients can understand, and we'd like for any of them to join our sponsor user program to provide direct feedback to our Design team as we build out the experience.

    Thanks,

    Emma

    Hi Emma,

    Sorry for bothering you again, just to inform my clients too...do you have an estimation date for this? If will be added in the further releases is there a time planned for that?

    Thank you in advance for your understanding.

    Hi,

    At the moment, we do not support this capability, but we will be introducing a better querying tool, so I'll add this use case to requirements for that.

    Thanks,

    Emma

    Hi Emma,

    That's correct, that is what we need. Is feasible?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    Ok, I think I understand what you're asking for. Today, you need to go to each asset to generate a lineage report, which might mean that you create 81 reports if there are 81 fields. In the future, you want to be able to aggregate those. Does that sound correct?

    Hi Emma,

    Sorry for my lat e reply.

    It will be more easier to have one single report containing all the terms we are interested on. If for example there is an authority that needs to check and sign the lineage report, than only one signature will be enough instead of 10-20...For example for one of Bank initiatives ( KYC) we are interested on 81 fields and check the lineage for all of them. Once the lineage is generated for a term we need to save the report and sent it for checking and sign off to other entities...we need to do this process 81 times, instead being able to save a report with all 81 fields. Let me know if you need more details.

    Thank you

    Hi Alexandra,

    What exactly are you looking to improve upon the existing experience? What about the existing experience is not what you need? What are you trying to accomplish? I'd like to get more details to add to the epic that I just created in our backlog for data lineage. Also, this functionality would be found in Watson Knowledge Catalog rather than IGC since that's where we're building all new functionality. We are working on a new data lineage experience right now and plan to release that next year.

    Hi Marc,

    Thank you very much for your feedback. Is there an proposed time for this enhancement. I understand it can be too soon to have such information, but maybe you can give us an estimation.

    Many many thx

    Thanks for the idea. As we evolve our Lineage designs and next generation Lineage Viewer we are exploring how to satisfy the requirement to save and share Lineage Reports off-line, or store such Reports for future audit. This would include the situation above, for a single Report across multiple Assets.
