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.

Ability to Schedule a refresh of an Uploaded File

I would like to have the ability to schedule a refresh of an uploaded file. If you store your excel or text to a file share and grant Cognos access to that share, you should have the ability to schedule a refresh of that data file.

Data Set refresh though batch job

Data sets are having scheduleing properties to get refresh, However instead of defining individual data set refresh schedule it would be much helpful if we can use cognos jobs to include multiple data sets in a single batch and schedule refresh.

Add/Extend CA REST API endpoint to retrieve groups/roles/capabilities for a specified user

In the current state, there is no endpoint within the Cognos REST API that allows an administrator to query another user's groups/roles/capabilities. Having this available would be extremely useful as we will have the ability to speed up our suppo...
