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 Upgrade - automate PAW Content upgrade

Each time PAW is upgraded, the content is not upgraded and there is no automated way for a PAW administrator to do it. This seems strange forcing someone to open and save the object to have it upgraded. In some cases, users aren’t allowed to save and object so that means with each upgrade someone with permissions has to go into each object and save it after it has been upgraded. Seems very inefficient and something a script or process could be created to do on the backend.

In Cognos Analytics, there is a process that can be executed to do this after each upgrade. Cognos Analytics even has options to do Content Removal (removes My Folder content for users that are no longer active in the system) and Consistency Checks for objects that fail to open. With PAW becoming more CA like, they really need some of these same capabilities for Administrators.

    I have updated this enhancement request to future consideration status. It's unlikely we will implement this as a feature in Planning Analytics Workspace. However, we are planning on opening up new API endpoints for Workspace. It's possible that we can consider API endpoints to navigate, open, and update books so that an automation tool could be used to update all content.

    No ETA at this point.
