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.

Import a DataStage job into a different environment on a different server (Git integration)

Currently, the script dfdGitCli.sh doesn't allow a job to be imported into a slightly different project name on a different server, e.g. from project_dev on erads11.ci.datastage.com to project_tst on erads12.ci.datastage.com. Given that our work flow is dev -> test -> prod and each project has an environment specified as part of the project name to prevent human error, the limit hinders us from adopting DataStage Flow Designer's Git integration functionalities.

We'd like the limit to be lifted through an enhancement so that we can utilize the Git integration for a CICD process moving forward. We believe that the enhancement would benefit overall DataStage licensees who are considering DataStage Flow Designer for Git integration.

    Thanks for your response. As far as MettleCl is provided by a company, "Data Migrators", not IBM. Did you mean to say that IBM recommends folks to use MettleCl for Git integration and CI/CD workflow?

    Thank you for your idea. This is currently not under consideration as we would recommend leveraging MettleCI provided now by IBM for advanced Git integration and CI/CD workflow.
