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.

SetUseActiveSandboxProperty should persist for Process and any child processes

Just like the way Temporary views and subsets now works where the objects persist until the end of the process chain/transaction, setting SetUseActiveSandboxProperty(1) in the parent should keep this enabled through all child processes.

When running a parent process with multiple child processes you need to code into each child process the function SetUseActiveSandboxProperty with the relevant value. The value may need to be set using a global or session variable.

Just like the Active Server Sandbox is available in child processes once set, so should this property be.

Users often want to run a process to test various scenarios and their outcomes. Aligning the behaviour of SetUseActiveSandboxProperty would make processes less prone to error or worse inadvertantly overwriting Base!

    This idea is not under consideration as part of the 2022/2023 roadmap. This idea will continue to remain open for voting.

    I suspect this might be difficult to implement without a switch as some TM1 models might already rely on the current behaviour.
