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.

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.

Project specific GIT repository in GIT Setup server TAB of Dataflow Designer tool

Summary of Observation:

We do have different projects in our datastage application. Each project is having its own GIT repository in Bit bucket & Facing 2 different functionalities missing in DFD tool.

Scenario -1:

As per our GIT repository setup, An admin privileged user have access to all Project specific GIT repository & All project access.

When an admin privileged user is trying to access different projects to define its specific GIT repository, GIT repository path is not getting reflected the project specific one & Its not providing any drop down to view the available GIT repositories to select its related one.

For an example, CEDP_DQAR & CEDPHUB are 2 different projects. The CEDPHUB's GIT repository path is:, Whenever try to select the CEDP_DQAR Project also, its tagged to chub_ds_build.git repository in GIT Tab instead of the actual repository ( Also, there is no drop down to view all available GIT repositories as similar to view all projects in datastage.

Scenario -2:

As per our GIT repository setup, An Application user is having privilege to access to specific datastage Project & its related GIT repository. When the user is trying to select that Projects, The GIT repository is pointing to different project related path.

For an example, CEDP_DQAR & CEDPHUB are 2 different projects. The app user is having access to CEDP_DQAR Project & its related GIT repository. When user is trying to view the GIT tab & select the CEDP_DQAR project, its still referring to the CEDPHUB related GIT repository.
