IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

"When" condition on workflow validation

Today, an Operation in the workflow allows for "when" conditions to be configured, however this same functionality does not exist on the Validation.

This is extremely limiting, as we are not able to set up validations to check that required fields are not empty based on conditions. For example, if an issue is marked as a policy deviation, then the policy and control fields are required, and we'd like to add validation for those fields being not empty when the issue is a policy deviation, but this is not possible.

As a result, we have to make the fields required, but this prevents users from saving the record without completing these fields, which is very frustrating for users.
