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.

Decision Center - Business Console - Add ability for rtsUser to export decision service project

Non-technical users have the ability to use the business console in Decision Center however, they are not able to export their project from development to integration unless they are given administrative privileges such as rtsConfigManager.

For example if you have two different installations of decision center one as a staging environment and one as your live environment users that have the rtsUser role are not given the option to export so they would need to download Eclipse install the ODM 8.10.x plugin, connect to a remote server and then publish their project to a new environment.

This feature should exist to allow non-technical users to use the business console for basic code deployment from the staging environment to the next environment in the chain without Eclipse or giving them access to the administrative panel in the Business Console.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. After consulting with the ODM dev team, this is something we'll consider adding for the current ODM release base (8.11). It could come as a Decision Center property to activate the export feature for all users.
