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.

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

Implement Analysis function from RTS into BC

In RTS, we had a simple and very useful function: Analyze that shows error/warning on rules. Report it to BC

    Hi, i totally support that idea. Users have.made a lot of remark when I announced it has disappeared in BC. Analysis report was perfect to find writting errors and also have warnings on rules. We need exactly the same in BC (and rest api also), without needed to build a snapshot that we will have to deleted after. This is not a improvement, just retrieving a good functionnality we had before Ludovic

    Hello, if I understand correctly your request, it's only to check that a particular ruleset can be built, with no error or warning. In other words, in Enterprise Console (RTS), you had only selected "Check the ruleset archive" in the Check options. Is that right ?

    There is no such check feature in Business Console, but we could consider adding one, for a selected decision operation. The workaround today can be to launch a 'fake' deployment that would only generate a ruleApp archive (no actual deployment to a RES server). Have you considered that solution ?
