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.

Enable document URL links

When a document retrieved by web crawling is checked from the search screen, I want to enable a link to the original document from the URL in the meta information.

The customer used oneWEX before, and has been migrating to WD Premium service since June 2021. However the customer are suffering from lack of functionality in WD.

In WEX FC and oneWEX, such URLs to the original documents can be enabled as direct links, which is a very useful feature.

However, Watson Discovery does not have such a useful feature at present.

Therefore, it has a big disadvantage as a search function.

In addition, there is no advantage of the Watson Discovery, which affects whether or not the customer will continue to use it in the next year.

    Thank you for your comment.

    Customers create and use Content Miner collections using web crawlers.

    Until now, when using oneWEX, they were able to follow a direct link from the Content Miner standard screen to the URL of the original document.

    The customer also understands that they can get the meta information of the URL link, but they are not supposed to create an application using the API.

    I don't understand this request. As you say, the URL is in the meta information for the document. You can get that meta information from the query API. So why can't your application provide a direct link to the original documents?
