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 Image local folder

When designig a PAW Book, we can insert object types "Image": to show it, we have to put an URL which addresses the Image. To do this, we need to setup a new Web Server or use an existing one (if we have...) and place all you images onto this web server in a dedicated folder which is accessible over the web via an URL. Then we can use this URL in PAW as a reference for the image we would like to import.
We would like to have a local folder on the PAW machine to place our images there, whithout the need to setup a Web Server.

    In the new UI experience (PAW v58 and above) you allow the ability to upload images for applications and plans. These images must be stored somewhere with the PAW containers, so I would like to ask if this functionality can be expanded to allow for any image to be uploaded and stored directly in containers? This would remove the need for local web servers or hosting images on public websites. It causes lots of unnecessary IT issues at the start of a project, when you have to explain that you need additional web servers or hosted images on the internet.

    Also under Administration->Customization you can have an images tab to allow admins to remove any unwanted images and manage the content.
