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.

[wi 83776] Change state of an asset from one state to another in RAM using REST API which RAM doesn't currently supports

Request : We would like you to raise an RFE for the functionality which is not currently supported by RAM using REST API.

Problem - We are currently using RAM 7.5.1 and REST API and have set the workflow in RAM server as Submitted->Review->Approved and added a condition to review the asset for more than one person to approve. We are unable to change state of an asset from one state to another in RAM using REST API.

As we couldn't able to find any solution, we raised a PMR on 8th Feb 2013(PMR 70112,999,744). The final update which we received on 8th March 2013 from your end stated that the REST API does not provide this capability and has not been explored from your end.

Could you please consider this feature in your next enhancement and let us know when we can expect a new release with this feature.

    This RFE's Headline was changed after submission to reflect the headline of an internal request we were already considering, but will now track here.

    Thank you for the request. We'll consider this in a future release of RAM. At this point there is no committed date.
    This will also be tracked via enhancement 83776 -->
