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.

Modify UCR/UCD integration to include a Synchronize feature.

This request is directly related to RFE #91771 in which we are requesting the ability to manually associate applications in UCR with those in UCD. This request is to change the behavior of the integration to include a synchronize feature. In the case of the current implementation, it performs a "populate" function. If an application is manually associated with UCD applications, this "populate" loses value and would instead benefit from "Sync".

Use Case
We are a large enterprise that is currently implementing UCD, UCR and RTC all at once. In many other use cases, enterprises have adopted UCD first and UCR second - in that case the "populate" function of the integration works quite well. In our case (and likely others) we are implementing both tools at once, which is requiring us to create applications in Release while our migration to Deploy is underway. Currently we have a patch that merges these application together in Release - but does this based on name and does not gracefully handle changes or updates to the applications in either tool.

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

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
