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.

When adding items (e.g. an operation) to an object with filtered compartments on a diagram, the new item should not show up on other diagrams with the same object and filtered compartments

If a model uses an object (e.g. a database) on a diagram, and that object has many compartments/operations etc, typically if a compartment/operation is not pertinent to the model it is filtered out and not displayed on the diagram. If that same object is used in another model on a different diagram and a new operation is needed, it is added to the object and displayed on the diagram. However, when you return to the original model it will be displayed on its diagram even though it is not pertinent for that model and the user must filter it off that original diagram manually. Currently when filtering there is only show or hide options and the default is show. Suggestion is to have a 3rd option/method, say "show only" when filtering compartment items on a diagram. If this option is used, when filtering the compartment, only those items would be shown on the diagram regardless if new items are added semantically to the object for another model.
