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.

Limit Size of Checked In Files To Synergy

We are looking for a way to limit the size of an object that someone wants to check into Synergy. For example, someone today tried to sync in a 40gb file. This isn't even remotely something that a source control system should allow into its repository. Since some customers may have a need for files this large, what I'm proposing here is to give a customer an option to limit the size of objects they want. This could either be done at the installation level and/or the database level. It seems to me the tool is already looking at the date stamps from the OS to determine changes so shouldn't be a big deal (my opinion) to also check the OS's size information.

NOTE: Synergy is no longer using the PMR system and your PMR ID is looking for a format your new support system doesn't have. The support case for this is TS001523489.
