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.

Use pre-configured database to view RIT results with RTCP when scripts are executed from jenkins

When we execute RIT scripts using RIT/Jenkins plugin, we have to export the database connection details from the RIT project to be able to show RIT results embeded on Jenkins.

If this action is not done, the pop-up with the following error is displayed: “Could not find database descriptor "RIT_ProjectName". Please export the database connection details from the project of that name, or navigate from the main 'Results' page.”

This solution is not acceptable since it requires creating manually a new DB record for each RIT project.

Jenkins' goal is to automate test execution. This is impossible if this kind of manual action must be done beforehand.

The purpose of this RFE is to allow the RIT/Jenkins plugin to use a unique pre-recorded BDD configuration and not to require that it be published from the RIT project used for testing.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
