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.

Pick Up a New Version of Job Step Automatically

The ability to configure a Job Step to automatically pick up a new version of the underlying asset.
I would like to have a setting or property available for a Job Step, where I can indicate whether I want the Job Step to automatically retrieve a new version with the indicated label whenever a new version of the underlying asset with that label is available in the repository.
If the new version of the asset requires additional configuration (such as selecting the credentials to use for a newly data source), a notification should be sent to the user, who is listed as the "Author" of the job, and the previous (working) version of the asset should be retained until the additional configuration is performed by the user.
