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 notifications 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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on-premises, containers, cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management

  • Cloud Pak for Network Automation - incl Orchestration and Performance Management

  • Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps - incl Netcool Operations Management portfolio

New feature TDWC 9.2 for submittal of a Job Stream from Stream definition need ability to adjust properties before submitting

New feature TDWC 9.2 allows for submittal of a Job Stream from Stream definition needs ability to adjust properties before submitting.
The new feature in the TDWC 9.2 that allows for submittal of a Job Streams into the plan from the Stream definition does not allow for adjustment to the properties or even give you a prompt that you are about to submit something into the plan as is. In the Submit Predefined Stream view and even in the JSC you could submit streams from the database and it would give you the ability to adjust the properties. The way this is now someone could submit streams into the Production plan not intending for them to execute right away.

I was told this feature was added for developers to be able to quickly submit streams/jobs into the plan for testing, but I don't think adding one more step asking if you would like to adjust the properties before submitting would add more than 5 seconds. I also think adjusting the stream definition properties say to put the stream on hold, then submitting it, and then remembering to adjust the properties again in the stream definition would be too many steps. Also adding this additional step to adjust the properties before submittal would mean you would not have to do the current added step of going to the Submit Predefined Stream from database view and then search for the stream again.

There are similar warning/informational type screen when canceling jobs in the plan that ask you if you are sure you would like to continue. I would see this as the same type message.

If this cannot be added, then I think the ability to disable this feature should be added. In our environment everything that is submitted ad hoc into the Production plan must be submitted on hold and go through a thorough peer review process prior to being executed.

    We have in our long term strategy to align the Workload Designer submission to what is available at plan monitoring level, but this RFE has been opened for a long time and this not in plan for next year, so we close it for now. Please reopen it if you still have this need.
