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.

Requested to enhance to display in Quick Scan Results >Action Required > Status column.

Requested to enhance to display in Quick Scan Results >Action Required > Status column. Currently if the quick scan FAILED there is no display of error messages. User has to open the quick scan job result and then going thru ne or two more stsps to see the FAILED errors. Requested Enhancment to display the error on the MAIN QUick scan Result Page would be helpful.

    Thanks Sudha! We are enhancing the entire discovery experience to make the job states/errors and logs easier to view and access. Looking forward to your feedback on this new experience. Thanks

    The error messages should align to why there would be a failure/error. If we can group by user friendly names that would be best I mentioned. Maybe: "Table\View does not exist", "No access to Select from Table\View", "Delayed Response from Source Connection", etc would be helpful. This is my Manager David's response to my comments. Thanks.

    It is good to display a validation message appropriately reflecting the error. Ex: IF the entire scan job FAILED due to Table not existed in TDDD then the message should reflect "Table not existed in TDDD" instead of No message or no reason for FAILED status and no one can run the quick scan job. Jobs gets stuck there . Thanks
