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.

RIT should append data type in each column title in invocation modification

For database stub in RIT10.0.2 and involving stored procedures with Oracle REF_CURSOR type outbond parameter, when adding or modifying invocations for stored procedures, an Excel file will be opened for input. At the 3rd sheet which is for result set, currently there are only field name in the first line of each column without data type, RIT should append data type to each field name as well.

There are 2 siutations:
1. if the invocation is newly added by maual, without data types in each column title in the resultset sheet, any modifications will lost with an error message.
2. the invocation was automatically created from recording. In this situation, modications on the resultset sheet will be saved, but it's inconsistent with format requirement and can not be reference for users.
