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.

Enhance /scr/api/TaskList API to add Username parameter

Hi,

We can use this API resource to get a list of open tasks assigned to the current user and a list of the user's completed tasks.

However, we want to be able to retrieve a list of open tasks assigned to any user and a list of any user's completed tasks.

This can be achieved by allowing the API to be called with an additional parameter - the Username (for example for me "users":[{"id":"149c94bbf0","avatarId":"20000219d14ac23","name":"Richard Carman"}]

In this way we can get a list of Work IDs for the Username and then call /scr/api/WorkDetail to get more information on the particular work item as required.

Can you please add this to your enhancement list, or advise if there is another way to call the TaskList API to get this information.

Use Case
Want to create a report of all Work tasks that are still assigned or are completed for a particular end user. The current /scr/api/TaskList API only reports for the currently signed in user, so this API doesn't meet the need - we need to be able to specify the username as a parameter.

    Thanks for your request! Our long term roadmap includes several enhancements to the "Work"-related APIs. We'll roll this use-case into that set when we get to them. - Thanks!
