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.

Ability to limit the scope of the ODM Decision Centre Archival to Recycle Bin baseline only
While there appears to be no way to permanently delete the rule artefacts once they have been deleted and reside in the recycle bin, a subject of an existing RFE, a potential work around to manage the scope of the archive ant script to the recycle bin allowing flexibility for the IT to limit the scope of the archival to the recycle bin from broader baselines and rule artefact history.
Why is it useful?
The idea allows for mitigating the following LIMITATIONS of the product presented to the business users
Inability of business users to permanently delete artefacts from the recycle bin
An alternative to limit the scope of the archival process to just the recycle bin.
Currently you have a business user that is
Struggling with 4000 business rules that they have deleted sitting in the recycle bin that needs to permanently be deleted but it is hindering access to the business rules that they genuinely need to restore some profiles from the recycle bin.
Has to engage IT to perform a full blow IT driven archival which is based on a clip date (archival date" forces archival of baselines etc which is not a requirements from the business.
All business users that need an assurance that the recycle bin can be managed. IBM currently does not have a solution for managing recycle bin cleanup. The additional benefit of keeping this solution within the archhival process would mean that there are no changes to decision centre Enterprise console (teamserver) code which I understand is not an active stream of work.
