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:

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.
For WEX (Watson Explorer Analytical), there are a set of applications required to enable communication between WEX and FileNet. On the WEX side, we install CPE Client. On the FileNet side, we install a war file (esp8services.war) on Websphere “ES P8 Services.” It lives on the same JVM as the CPE engine. This WAR file allows the WEX client to access the CPE backend and lookup the user groups.
With FileNet moving to containers, we can still install the needed CPE Client on the WEX servers but lose the ability to pull FileNet user groups and only shows stats / documents that match the end user's security. This is an essential need as we have FileNet collections that encompass multiple doc classes and users have different security access to the documents. (1 group sees 1 doc class, the elevated group sees 2 doc classes.)
Without the feature, we would lose document security.
