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.
automapper should also work with same input/output types
It is a common pattern to work twice on a output card, e.g.:- when the output should also include summarized amounts of several output records that need to be built/calculated first- when the header should announce how many records will followNow ...
Autmoapper from output to output
The automapper is very useful, but only does input to output. In some cases, we need to prepare mapping in one output card, and enrich it later in a following output card. Currently, it can be done but needs some cards copy and moving, and this wo...
Enhanced functional maps navigation in studio
In complex mappings, it is sometimes hard to navigate across multiple levels of functional maps.Developers' life would be easiser if they could get back to the place where they were before going to a given function map
A new WARN() function, which would work similar to FAIL()
I propose a new function WARN(), which would work in a similar way to FAIL() and end the map with a specific warning code.
Create multiple indexes in one shot
When developing and working with item(s), it could be interesting to create several indexes of an item in one shot. This is to avoid using the "add index" function again and again (which is time consuming)
Need Design Studio in Linux environment to support IIB mqsicreatebar command on Linux to build applications containing ITX v9
Need Design Studio in Linux environment to support IIB mqsicreatebar command on Linux to build applications containing ITX v9, as suggested by Level 2 Technical Support for IBM Transformation Extender (TX).
Handling XML data Using WTX map
We have a WTX translation map from xml to Legacy format. The source xml type tree has been created with the XSD schema. Currently the map was working fine with the xml data because it is matching with type tree structure. However the client is say...
Support SFTP as a file transfer option for deployments from IFD
My IT shop has moved away from FTP in favor of SFTP for all internal file transfers between servers. The Integration Flow Designer (IFD) within the WTX Design Studio only supports FTP as the sole file transfer protocol when utilizing the deployme...
ITX Design Studio Eclipse in sync with Rational Developer for z Systems
We deploy Eclipse tooling to our developers. It would be very benificial if we can include the ITX plugin in our RDz package. The request therefore is to have the ITX Eclipse plugin upgraded to the same Eclipse version as being used for RDz. It sh...
WTX should not crash when a resource value is too large.
Although the limits in resource values is documented, it is still possible to enter too long a value in a mrn file.This crashes the studio when running a map, even if the faulty resource is not used by the map.The resource registry tool should als...
