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.

RSA should provide ability to generate XML Sample from WSDL

Aim: We want to be able to easily create samples for our consumers to view the way they should call our service.
Problem: We cannot create samples directly from the WSDL.
Current workaround: We generate an XSD file from our WSDL. We've written some code to do the generation, but it's an extra step that we have to run, and also it doesn't integrate well with our version control system, so the WSDL and XSD get out of sync when someone thinks they've run the plugin, but they haven't.
Desire: We'd like to be able to right click on a WSDL, and have from the “Generate” menu item, an option to generate XML. (Same as what an XSD currently has)
