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.

Allow HTTPS calls for InfoSphere RDM to run BatchExport API

Hello all,

We use InfoSphere Master Data Management Reference Data Management Hub v11.6 to maintain the reference data across organization. And to implement automation of export we use BatchExport API. Now when we saw the API config in WebSphere console; it is referring HTTP calls to pull and push the data.

and we understand that per IBM documentation - its restriction to have HTTP call

But as per ANZ standard, We should be always using HTTPS calls.

We raised the PMR# TS003666860 <>

Hence we need support from IBM to provide the enhance install file which makes HTTPS calls.

    Hi Mohammed,

    We understand that it's a valid requirement to allow HTTPS calls for RDM to run BatchExport APIs.

    As you are probably already aware, IBM's strategic solution for managing reference data is Watson Knowledge Catalog on the Cloud Pak for Data platform, and that's where all investment is directed toward.

    Given the current RDM architecture maturity and IBM's strategy, we are rejecting this enhancement request.

    By the way, have you explored the option of exporting from the RDM UI? Though I do understand there are differences between batch export and exporting from UI.
