Post an idea
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.
Ability to bulk export/push jobs from Data Flow Designer to GITHUB repository
In the current 11.7 implementation, each datastage job has to be pushed on to GITHUB repository. Say that there are 100 jobs in a datastage project, each job has to be opened in the flow designer and then published to the GITHUB repo.
This is a time consuming process since the same step has to be repeated for each of the 100 jobs. In real world implementations, every DataStage project contains thousands of jobs( 7000 in our case) and publishing each and every job to GITHUB is a tedious and frustrating process which is a waste of time and resources.
The situation gets more worse when people migrate from older versions of datastage to the newer versions like 11.7.
The GITHUB integration with flow designer has to be made user friendly by providing the bulk publish feature like other CI/CD tools in the market.
In the current implementation it lacks the basic features that other CI/CD tools provide.
