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

Post 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 notification 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 which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Integration of UI Extensions (Helpers) in the Task Focused UI

In many cases customers have UI extensions (helpers) to allow for functionality that is not available in the standard UI.

In the new UI currently there are extensions for Watson Classifiers, but the ability to extend the UI for custom functionality is not available.

The basic requirements in all cases are:

  • Read information from individual fields in the task view
  • Write information to individual fields in task view (including hidden fields) – UI needs to identify the change (and display the Save button) and save changes both to visible and hidden fields. All field types should be supported (string, enum, date, currency, user-fields)
  • Identify the state of the task view with respect to changes (distinguish if the user has already made a change or not)
  • Refresh a specific task view (currently the RCSA alignment helper refreshes all tabs and thus changes in individual tabs are lost)
  • Ideally extensions could also be opened from the guidance and section information (including the resource id in the link)


Example use case: to give context to the risk assessment, users are presented with a dynamic heat map (based on preference objects for each entity) to visualize the impact their qualitative assessment has.

    This request has been delivered in the OpenPages 8.2 release.

    From our API Documentation link (, download the OpenPages with Watson SDK REST Samples.

    Under that you would go to TaskviewFieldsHelper and you will find a ReadMe file.
