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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 notifications 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.
PEM API Test Capability
The PEM API documentation page does not provide a sample input and output message format for the APIs.
Some of the API inputs are not intuitive and difficult to get to the correct format accepted by the APIs. If there is an easier API test capabi...
Store more than 10 data fields
Often we have scenarios where SFG Solution uses external database tables. These tables can have any number of columns. When PEM activities are customized to collect data from sponsor/partner for the table and if the number of columns is more than ...
Extra Cols in Table on UI Dialog
Table on UI Dialogs can have a max of 10 columns. Sometimes more than 10 columns are required to collect data from sponsors/partners. Please extend the number of max columns a table can have.
Increased character limit of Context Data
Currently, Context Data can only contain 10,281 characters. Some requirements and design require more information to be stored in Context Data. Alternate Solution is to store and retrieve from GenericData Configuration, but it complicates the acti...
Upload UI component - improve user experience
The user experience of the Upload button in UI dialogs could be improved greatly.
Currently, not counting the browser's file-selection window, it takes 5 mouse clicks and typing in a name to upload a new file:
1) Click the Upload button in the U...
Feature to close bulk PEM Portal and Provisioner Activities
Currently, each activity or rollout has to be manually and separately closed. During development, Unit Testing, and UAT cycles lots of activities are created. There should be a way in PEM to bulk close Portal and Provisioner activities based on fi...
Add the ability to administer division partners and LOB users via the PEM Portal UI
Currently, Divisions can be created via the portal UI, however, the assigning/unassigning of partners to divisions and the assigning/unassigning of LOB users can currently only be done via API calls. It would be much easier if this could be done ...
Code Lists and data tables should be searchable on all fields
Customers want the ability to search generic data tables and code lists using data fields other than the primary field. This would allow PEM to be a more accessible system of record.
Validation failure message box
Currently it is possible to add validation to dialogs in tasks. When a partner does not complete/answer accurately there is no way to specifically tell them what to fix. There is a red X next to the field which is in violation, but not what they a...
Enable UI dialog table rows to be expanded dynamic for data entry
For tables used for collecting input, provide a setting that would allow a new row to be added after the last row has been used.
