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.

IBM RFT Web UI Test - v10.1.2: Updating the thinktime for the recorded WebUI test script

We are recording many scripts using the Web UI test project. Some of the scripts have more than 50 or 60 steps and we do need to record 300 to 400 scripts.

To improve the performance and to achieve the synchronization, we need to adjust the thinktime by visiting each step in the recorded script.

is there any option to provide/ update the thinktime at one shot for 300 recorded scripts?

Also, is it possible to update the thinktime for all the 50 test steps of a particular script?

Please refer to the IBM ticket - TS005566035


Use Case
It will save time if we can update the thinktime at the project level or test script (recorded Web UI script).

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified. Please provide the following information
    1. We have the ability in the schedule to control the thinktime. Is this similar to what you're looking for?
    2. When you run an individual test, there's a Max Thinktime in Test Execution Preferences that's set to 2s

    Would you like us to apply Option 2 to compound tests, too?
