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

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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit ibm.com/ideas.

Style of RichText tables should be configurable.

When creating a table in a RichText enabled field of RSA (for instance under the Documentation tab in the properties view), the table comes with a global border, and each single cell is also bordered. This gives the confusing impression that every...

Ability to adjust the line height in the rich text documentation

There is no setting to change the whitespace line height in the rich text editor.Currently, if you type a line in a model element's rich text Properties > Documentation and then press ENTER, the cursor will appear, not on the next line, but rat...

Expose internal API to compute configuration properties for all model resources

At the moment, there is no public API in Rational Software Architect (RSA) to allow you to calculate model resource properties to be added to the transformation configuration files.This calculation is currently done by the configuration editor its...

RSA DAP: Realization links between conceptual and physical units not checking customized attributes

When you create realization links between conceptual and physical units, the realization link is meant to check that the values defined in the physical unit matches the values defined in the conceptual unit. However, it is only checking the prede...

RSA DAP RAM Plug-in: When publishing a new asset using asset management perspective in RSA dependent assets are not picked up

When publishing a new asset using asset management perspective in RSA dependent assets are not picked up. It should be transparent that any topologies that are imported to the to-be-published topology is automatically configured with a Topology de...

RSA DAP: Work practice document: DP&A > Source Control > Rational Asset Manager

Today, the user can have unexpected results when working in RSA DP&A with source control and Rational Asset Manager since there are no documented guidelines for working with both systems together. Specifically, work practices and subsequent p...

RSA DAP: Validator for Port Uniqueness

In Deployment Planning, a validator should be available for IP Ports to verify uniqueness across all units configuring ports in the scope of an operating environment.For example, the TCP Listener for MQ must determine an IP port for a given IP Add...

RSA DAP: Constraints not well defined for MQ and Broker Deployment Planning units

Feature implementation request and supplemented documentation to be produced for RSA gaps found during testing: * Queues/channels - need constraints added to ensure cluster and cluster namelist do not appear together * All channels - connection na...

RSA DAP: Unit Installation State update on Realization link resolution

Scenario:1. A conceptual topology representing asset version x is represented in a physical topology as an imported topology2. A physical topology represents all Units being in an Installed state3. The designer imports an updated version of the co...
