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):

BAW Create a new BPM Project Application or Toolkit Branch from scripting command

It is possible to create a new Project Application or Toolkit Branch (aka Track) from the BPM classic Workflow Center console, as described in the product Knowledge Center:

This request is to get a scripting command to do the same operation. As BPM scripting commands are usually provided through wsadmin command interface, this is the proposed procedure.

These are the wsadmin scripting commands currently available in BAW

As a new Track is created from a specific snapshot we propose the following syntax to create it:

-containerAcronym process_application_or_toolkit_acronym -containerTrackAcronym track_acronym -containerSnapshotAcronym snapshot_acronym
-trackName track_name -trackDescription track_description

-containerAcronym process_application_or_toolkit_acronym -containerTrackAcronym track_acronym -containerSnapshotAcronym snapshot_acronym

dsecribe the original snapshot from which create the Track

-trackName track_name -trackDescription track_description

describe the new created Track
