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.

More Verbose to be included in the PERL engine RBF logs

Currently, there is no Build Forge log which provides the status of failure or success of any batch jobs for the Perl version of BuildForge.
We got confirmation earlier from IBM that the features we are expecting are available in the java version of Build Forge but not for the Perl version of Build Forge.
Hence we are requesting IBM to check if we can get the same features in the Perl version in future versions

Let us know how to have a log file in the build forge server that shows something like this:

[Date and time of failure] [Project Name][Project ID] [Status]


2015-12-11 14:49:46.0,Batch-PROD-SmartDashboard,Batch-PROD-SmartDashboard_1147 [FAILED]

Currently, it doesn't show in the Perl RBF log file the below
- Failed, Canceled, or Failed But Continued strings
