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.

Verification point comparator should be opened from "View Results" of test log in Edge as the same as IE

IE11 goes out of support on 15th June 2022 so we are thinking to use Edge instead but in Edge, verification point comparator doesn't open from "View Results" in the HTML and XML test log like IE. We request that verification point comparator is op...

Add function to adjust the width of the table cell showing VP comparison result in unified report

In Details pane of unified report, tables showing data grid VP result display actual/expected data in fixed-width cells. Long data cannot be fully displayed in a cell, and short data has too much space. Both cases degrade readability.

Need to have Smart Card support restored for Rational Performance Tester and Rational Functional Tester

Beyond versions 9.5, smart card support was removed from the products due to a transition with the underlying JRE. Support for Smart Cards remains a requirement for US government clients and should be restored as quickly as possible.

The way to display actual/expected images of image VP needs to be improved for readability

Unified report shows distorted (enlarged or shrinked) images when comparing actual and expected image of image VP because each image is rendered in a uniform and fixed-sized area

RTCP - Restrict Result Databases for each user

As per our current RTCP version 10.1, any RTCP logged in user is able to see the results from other users as well who published the data to RTCP. This is kind of a security concern and we would like to restrict the data shown to RTCP logged in use...

Have an option to automatically delete browser hitory when doing a HTTP reording

Every time I do a http recording it's best practice to delete browing history, even cookies, in fact RPT tells us so, see first picture. Why not have a check box somewhere on this dialog in second picture

pre-populate Test->Recording->Proxy Recording filters with well known junk domains

RPT allows the use of filters when recording to filter out domains at recording time so they don't have to be filtered out at test generation time. The problem is this list is empty, and a bit tricky to use Refer to junk1.jpg for the Preference in...
