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 Bulk API for BPM REST To Include Failure Responses
We are using BPM Advanced 8.5.7 currently using a 3-step process to use REST query/claim/finish call to update a task in received status for a given process instance. I would like IBM to reconsider it's approach to how the bulk API support is handled with the BPM REST interface. My expectation is that it should work in such a way that all success and failure results are echoed back in a bulk response in the same order that they were submitted in the request. Ultimately, there should be a response summary that includes how many requests were processed and how many were successful or failed. If there were 10 requests and all were successful then it should be echoed with a success return code. If it were 10 failures, then a failure return code. If it were a mix of both, then it would be a partial response code. What I get now on a failure is a 404 HTTP status code, which is not very intuitive. This is related to PMR 16563 122 000.
