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 for resolution.

as a CQ security administrator, I want the ability to enable a query to run in privileged mode

CQ security administrator, I want the ability to enable a query to run in privileged mode, such that non-privileged users can see selected fields in hidden records

We want this ability for cases where a record contains a mix of secure and non-secure information. The security administrator would determine what fields are allowed to be shown to any user, and would approve queries that had only those fields in the display list. Once approved, any user can run the query and see those fields in the result set, and only in the result set. A non-privileged user would not be able to open any record that is actually hidden.

Idea Priority Urgent
Use Case
User Query is created in CQ CQ Admin reviews fields requested by query creator If approved, admin then approves the query Users can then run the query to get a result set Users would be restricted from opening records outside of the query set if the record is actually hidden.
