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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

RFT Edge chromium browser FOR BUSINESS support for functional testing

RFT support chromium based Edge browser. But RFT only support public edition. RFT not support business edition.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/edge/business/download

Business edition is different from public edition about install path ant execute file name.

RFT cannot recognize chromium edge browser, because of above reason.

Use Case
Chromium based browser for business is provided by installer program. So, some companies using closed network can use chromium based browser.

    We recognize what RFT has delivered Microsoft Edge browser from ver. 10.1.1 requested by ID: 143013.
    But RFT has not supported the Microsoft Edge for BUSINESS edition now.
    We think that RFT has supported the Microsoft Edge for HOME edition.
    Could you please support RFT which used the Microsoft Edge BUSINESS EDITION for our business customers?
