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.

PAW - Subset behavior

PAW can only refer to an element name of a subset and not to index .

If in a paw book we use a named subset that presents the current month , for example MAR from a subset that contains MAR FEB JAN

if the next month we update the subset with APR,MAR,FEB,JAN, PAW books stills open on MAR when it should open on the first element of the subset: APR.

If we use MDX subset based on cube values, it can works but with some dowsides. A major one is it display error pop-up in PAW view if MDX is empty. It would be great to be able to desactivate these pop-up (user parameter for example will be esmpty first time they connect).

    I can reproduce the behaviour described in the description. However, I'm not sure if this is something we want to change. The view in Workspace remembers which subset is used for each hierarchy on the title axis of the view. It also tracks the currently selected member in the WHERE clause of the MDX statement for each hierarchy on the title axis. I expect the natural expectation for many uses cases to be the member remains the same, when possible, even if the members in the set has changed. We might consider how member context could be passed to views through synchronization functionality.

    I've set this idea to under review while we do additional investigation. Additional comments about the use cases that require the member to change based on index might help.
