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.
DataStage connector for SalesForce should attempt reconnecting several times if connection is temporarily interrupted
This is referring to IBM Infosphere DataStage v11.5! I could not find this exact product in the list. ETL jobs that are connecting to SalesForce to fetch data do not extract all available data reliably. Sometimes the connection is briefly interrupted but as confirmed by IBM support. the DataStage SalesForce connector is not designed in such a way that it could resume / retry connecting. In our view, this is a very important and mandatory feature, without which the usability of the connector is compromised. As the connector behaves today, we are fetching every time a different number of rows from SalesForce even though there is no significant variability in the source.
