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.

Parallel execution and re-rerun of failed tests in suite

We don't have a mechanism to execute tests in a test suite in parallel with maven or ant, as RIT doesnt support it. We don't have any automated approach which RIT provides to re-run the failures after test execution which is a big blocker for us with DevOps in context.

We have a workaround for this, if we select to run all tests in test suite but no workaround exists for re-running failed tests.

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

    How to execute multiple test cases in parallel without having a test suite?.

    Also how to run multiple test suites in parallel?. RIT provides capability only to run test cases in a test suite in parallel.

    Refer to this for maven example:

    A test suite already includes the ability to execute tests in parallel. Please provide more details of what you are expecting that Maven would do differently from our native test suites, in order to help us better understand the request.
