IBM Data and AI RegTech Ideas Portal

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

Post 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 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.

For product documentation, see Knowledge Center.

    Per customer's request:

    STEPS: File upload Required Fields

    1. User makes an upload. Just the Description is being displayed. This is a "Required Field"

    2. After the file completes the upload, the user Click on " Edit" this file

    3. In the Edit screen, he can see the following items set with asterisk

    showing the following other required fields:




    Today, customer is making many uploads and needs to have a rework accessing all objects to fill those required fields. The question is: how the product is allowing the creation of a new object with some Required Fields with empty values ? This should not be allowed and this is the reason all Required Fields should be listed in the "Upload page".

    This was partially provided in 8.1:

    - View Version history, the task view designer provides now the ability to add a "Version Component" that will list all the versions in the File Task View

    - Download is also available through the version component
