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.

Fetch user information example first name, last name and email address based on the provided user attribute.

We have a requirement to fetch the user details for example user first name, last name and email address based on the provided user attribute

For every user we have set a custom user attribute as WMID (Walmart ID) so using that we want to fetch complete user details.

Currently we are fetching using direct query to user attribute tables but want to use some API. Reason for that is, keeping in mind of future releases in BPM we are not sure when the tables might change. Also this is the one of the recommendation from IBM SWAT team.

Thanks

    We value your suggestions for BPM product enhancements. This is a valid requirement and may be considered for a future BPM release. Please note this is not a commitment, but an indication of intent.
