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.

Allow user to execute native RFT scripts in WebUI specifying a Google Chrome Profile to use

An automated script should be executable against the same parameters an end-user would experience. If users requires specific add-on's/extensions in their Google Chrome Profile, RFT/WebUI should be able to launch with those options in the profile. This feature already exists for new WebUI scripts in RFT. The idea is to extend that to RFT script playback with WebUI

Why is it useful?

Our customer requires a CSS styling extension for RFT to play nicely with Google Chrome. Without this feature our customer is unable to execute their existing 2000+ scripts.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? RFT users using WebUI Playback with Chrome and require Chrome profile options
