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.

Unable to use DB Connection and Discovery connection available to everyone

The DB connection was create by platform admin team. When trying to use the connection via Data Discovery job the application is asking for UserName and Password. The stewards would not have passwords available with them. The application should let them use the connection.

 Issue 2: Once a connection is added to Discovery than its available to anyone having discovery permission. A unauthorized person can go ahead and use a connection to discover assets. Once discovery job completes the User can see sample data from the database which he/she should not be allowed.

Expected Result for Issue 2: User should only see his/her connection in Data Discovery.

    I believe this is working correctly now. Data Discovery can be done with a global connection created by others, but browsing actual data values directly in the catalog requires knowing the connection information. Please close this ticket. Thanks.
