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.

Parameter in Control Center for insert OCR/Captcha API-key

The Control Center can have an OCR and Captcha Api-Key configuration parameter, for all scripts to use automatically without the need to enter command by command

Today if the customer has a large number of bots, they need to update command by command, publish bot and create a new scheduler.

And also the end customer will have to pass the API-KEY for all devs to use because the OCR and Captcha commands do not accept variables in the secure text type, to store the API-KEY in the vault.

Idea Priority High
Why is it useful?

End Customer, because if you need to change the API-key, it changes directly in the Control Center

    This functionality already exists. You can set up a parameter in Control Center and configure the bots to use the parameter.

    So if I use the parameter the key is open for everyone to see, where the devs can copy and use the key outside the project. My idea was to have something specific and safe
