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.

IBM DataStage Flow Designer REST API - Multiple compile jobs feature

We are looking for a REST API call that perform multiple compile jobs feature (the same feature available into Datastage Designer Client).
In the doc ( we found only instructions for compile one job at time.
Can you implement one API Rest call for allow users to compile multiple job in one time?

It should be very useful in order to automate on Linux server based compile phase in terms of Delivery from one Environment to another one (for example from quality to production) without installing any Client tier (currently no way to do than on Linux O.S.) and a rest Call could be simply integrate into one more complex bash script.

Considering current available features the automatic delivery in a Linux based environment is inefficient (integration with windows dedicated server for compile jobs), heterogeneous (linux/windows mixed solutions), expensive to develop (in terms of virtual/bare servers and scripting develop bash + powershell windows) and can not be centrally managed in a unique point.
