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

  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.

Set additional build job step status at uBuild

Hi Team,

We would like to set the additional status other than success/Failure/Abort on each build job step. Where we would like to set optional desired status. We will create required status using settings satuses and re-validate the output logs set the desired status to buildjob step and also the overall status with desired status.

2. In the information radiator also we have only few status, where in we would expecting the other desired status updated should be visible on each build.

3. Overall build status on the project dashboard is complete, Failure or aborted. We would anticipated it should display the desired output status across the project.

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

    1. Update Warning status to build job step.
    Description: Validate build job step output and update the status to Warning or desired status if it finds any warnings and feasible to count as well. With current approach and uBuild design, the step status is defined as Success/Failure.
    What we have tried:
    We did updated new Status as Warning and created post process script to search for the string “warning”. If it finds the string, mandate the step status to Warning. With default design we can't set/update the step status to desired status. Even we mention the status Warning, it will set to Success. Let us know if we have any plugin to achieve this.
    Assign status step also shows success, even mention the set status to Warning. It will update the overall build status to Warning and desired color. But, the Assigned status step (which setting up the warning status is success). Application team would like to set
    • Build job step status to desired status if possible display the warnings count at build.
    • Over all status of the build should set to warning and even Assigned status step should be warning.

    2. Over all build status will be set to warning, but project dashboard we have only build shows with status as Completed/Failed or Aborted. It wouldn't display the Warning builds on project dashboard

    3. In the information radiator, we don't have option to chose the desired build status. Which has default status and even we can't make any color coding.
