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.
Start and Stop WD for CP4D scripts to be added to the product
When managing Watson Discovery for Cloud Pak for Data, there are times when we need to restart the system. For example. hardware maintenance, planned outtage, disaster recovery, datacenter migration, etc.
In such cases, currently, there is no official way to gracefully restart Watson Discovery and CP4D. So, customer has to take the risk for their own to restart the system, which is odd, considering they bought IBM products.
Providing stop/start script even for just Watson Discovery services will save the maintenance/operation users a lot of time and effort and also it will be very grateful.
Providing an official way to restart the whole system will be even greater.
