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.

DB Script to purge entire data set

When DEV is refreshed with PROD data, Clients would not want to expose their confidential data on a Non-PROD environment. To some extent there are purge/anonymization APIs but it is object/resource specific. It would be better to have a DB script to purge entire data set so that the DEV instance only retains application configuration after refresh but not the data.


On DEV, Clients does play around with the configuration and customisation, and not all configurations/customizations make their way to PROD which makes DEV out of sync with PROD in many ways. One of the options is to refresh DEV with PROD backup but Clients want to ensure that the DEV does not expose any of their PROD data to DEV users and they expect DEV to retain only application configuration.


Note: Import/Export configuration will NOT work as importing PROD configuration on DEV does not delete unnecessary fields/field groups/drop down values etc created on DEV. Also soft deleting objects would not work as there would be users who might have access to DEV DB.
