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.

Pease enable ICU Normalization Character Filter.

Currently the search in Discovery collection is case sensitive for English word while we search in Japanese collection.
There are customers whose document has many trademarks or service names in Alphabet characters in which case we want to search them regardless the lower or upper case. (For the example, LaLa is the customer's service name where it normally searched by "lala" or "Lala" so it won't be found by Discovery service.

    Sorry but I'll withdraw this idea as it looks that the ICU Normalization for Japanese WDS configuration has been added since Dec/18/2017. I was using collection which was created prior to that date.
