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.

CQ web site configuration settings needs to be schema specific

In cqweb, we have site administration settings, that allow us to set various options including security options, application options, webserver options. report, email etc.

In a server where we have multiple schema, these settings are common for all schema. Though we update these by logging in to one particular schema, the changes are reflected to other schema as well.

Instead of common values across all schemas, we should be able to set these values for each schema.


1. In site administration -> configuration -> Application options -> Allow mutlirecord update Groups, if we change from default to everyone to specific group , this changes are reflected to other schema site configurations in same server.

2. In site administration -> cross-server communication
There is an option to add friendship connections to different URL. Here the friendship added in one schema is reflected in other schema of same server
