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.

Option to specifiy JAVA_OPTS for Source Control / Non-Groovy Plugins

Currently there is no configuration available that allows for setting additional JVM options to be run for Source Control / Non-Groovy plugins. It is possible to set JVM options for agents, agent relays, deploy servers and automation plugins, but not for the source control plugins. We would like the same capability for the source control plugins, either by inheriting from the same plugin-javaopts.conf or via a separate file.

Use Case
This feature would be used to allow usage of a custom java truststore for the agent used for Version Imports using the JVM option. This is part of a wider configuration in which an internal Certification Authority is used for signed certificates which is not imported into the default java truststore (cacerts). There are a wide range of other uses for being able to set custom JVM parameters for source control plugins, such as debugging and performance options (memory settings etc.).

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