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.

File Connector - reject link not supported

Hi, We are using Parquet format files and there appears to be an issue with File Connector not supporting the Reject links for Parquet. This is a road blocker for our NextGen Migration as existing BDFS stage jobs will be replaced with File Connector and we would like to have Reject link support for Parquet format files in File Connector.

    Thanks you for submitting this idea.

    We're currently working on implementing this functionality in the Datastage File connector.

    It should be available in the future version of the product. If you need it earlier, feel free to reach out to our support team.
