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):

  • Cloud Pak for Automation - incl Business Automation Studio, Business Automation Insights

Decision Engine BOM2XOM ARL editor needs auto-completion

The Bom2XOM mapping field does not auto-complete entries when using the Decision Engine instead of the classic rules engine.
The ARL based field don't respond to CTRL + SPACE so you have to manually type in all the code

Idea Priority High
Use Case
Auto completion reduces errors when keying in entries and show you possible API methods when coding. It's a huge help normally

    And while you are implementing this change can you also make the editor box extendable as 6 lines of code is not large enough to work with for complex B2X snippets.

    Actually the requested feature consists in asking to fix the regression in the BOM2XOM mapping and ruleflow editors.
    The auto completion is actually not the only thing missing, the errors are not underlined in red as well.

    This is indeed a "must have".
