configure syntax coloration on BAL rules/Decision tables

Developpers using dark theme complain not being able to read rules. It would be nice to be able to configure the colors of bal constructs, as it is already possible to do with IRL editor

    Hello,

    Thank you for taking the time to suggest this enhancement to IBM Operational Decision Manager. Your request may not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme aligns with our current roadmap for IBM Automation Decision Services and, as such, is being tagged for future consideration. IBM Automation Decision Services (ADS), a next-generation intelligent automation service delivered as part of IBM Cloud Pak for Automation (https://www.ibm.com/cloud/cloud-pak-for-automation), provides an intuitive decision modeling environment where business experts can initiate projects that combine prescriptive business rules and predictive models. Depending on the compatibility of the solution with ODM UI framework, we could also consider some improvements for ODM.

    We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.
    If you have any additional feedback or thoughts, or if there is anything else I can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation.
    Please note: IBM's statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at IBM's sole discretion.

    Sincerely,
    Antony Viaud
    Offering manager, IBM Automation Decision Services
