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 Action Button ability to get parameters from selectors

From the last demonstration that I have seen of 2.0.6 PAW is only able to prompt for parameters to a TI process at the time that you click on the Action Button. This is not how most systems are designed. Users will typically make selections in the Set Editor so that a grid returns data, eg for the Cost Centre that they selected. They will then either enter data into the grid, or just review the figures in the grid and then click the Action Button, which will either change a workflow cube to the next stage, or load the figures into another cube. They don't want to be prompted to select the Cost Centre again. Therefore the Action Button needs to have the ability to get parameters from selections on the sheet, especially from Set Editors, but also potentially from the Selected DBRW, or the equivalent cell in a non-DBRW based view such as an Explorer View.

    Do we have an update on this ? Is it in the latest PAW 2.0.52 release ?

    It would be very usefyll to the synchronize button parameters, getting values from active selectors: I think in this way the "synchronization behaviour" would be completed.

    Hi Paul Thanks for the information. Let me know when there is a release date. We probably won't even begin evaluating PAW until this is available.  Regards Paul

    This is absolutely on our backlog. We do not have a planned release for this yet.
