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.

UrbanCode Deploy - Remedy plugin and date compare

Currently the Remedy plugin has the ability to check a named field against a specific value and either report success or failure depending on whether there is a match or not. A UK customer needs the ability to check a date and time field value within remedy and be able to check if the current date and time is before or after the specified date. Also the customer wants to be able to check a date window to see that the current date is after the start window date field and before the end date field held in Remedy. So in summary we need to be able to check that the current date and time is before and field AND that the current date and time is after a different field.

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

    I agree that we need to ensure that plugins are generic and usable b a wide community. I think returning the date fields and allowing the logic to take place in a subsequent step will be a good compromise in keeping this generic and providing what they customer needs.

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified. Adding additional fields to a plugin for specific purposes can sometimes make the plugin clunky and harder to understand. As an alternative, could we return the date as an output property and then you can provide your own date range logic using a Groovy or Shell step?
