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.

Change the default names used for the Request+Response+Error Class types in the RES generated HTDS services
If the JAVA XOM of your Operational Decison Manager project contains a class named Request or Response or Error then the definition of that class will be overwritten if you generate the OpenAPI/JSON file for the rule service deployed in the RES.
This will happen silently and if you import this service into another tool such as IBM Business Automation Workflow the import will work but you will get an error when you try to call the service as ODM will not be able to parse the payload. This can be very time consuming/impossible to debug.
The simple fix is to use class names that are unlikely to cause a clash with XOM classes. If this name includes the service name then it would make the classes more readable in the application that imported the service.
e.g. so instead of "Request" use something like "ODM_Miniloan_Request"
