Digital Business Automation Ideas

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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

backport functionality which was added to version 20.0.0.02 of have execution evaluator run on workflow server

in an open case we had about not being able so run execution evaluator from the web designer to run javascript commands against the workflow server , which does exsist in the desktop desinger. we were told that this feature will be added to the web desinger in version 20.0.0.2. therefore we ask for this functionality to be backported to version 19.0.0.3

Who would benefit from this IDEA? developers of BAW 19.0.0.3 who need this capbalility to fix problems in running processes on the workflow server

    Hi Yoav,

    Thank you for the suggestion. New functionality is not backported to previous releases. Upgrading to BAW 20.0.0.2 would allow you take advantage of this feature.
