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.

Adding Additional Links to UCD Component Version via Jenkins - UCD PlugIn

Currently, it is not possible to push links to a new component version using the Jenkins - UCD Pipeline (Build Steps) Plugin. We'd like this feature to be added so that related links can be added when appropriate. We're forced to use pushProperties temporarily since this feature is missing. (See pushProperties line below.)

/*...(unrelated block creating component)...*/
delivery: [
/*...(unrelated block) ...*/
pushProperties: "LINK_NAME=${LINK_URL} //We'd like to set this as a link, not as a property.

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

    This can currently be done through the UCD REST API. We created a shared library that removes the existing Jenkins link and replaces it with a link to the RTC build:

    httpRequest httpMode:'PUT', authentication: 'UCDImport', quiet:true, url: "https:///cli/version/addLink?component=${ucdComponentName}&version=${versionNM}&linkName=&link="
