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.

WKC - Multi select option in connected Asset Import in the catalog view

If we add connected assets to a catalog we can only select one asset and have to provide a name for that asset. Usually we import hundreds of tables and this seems quite painful. We would prefer a experience where we can select multiple tables, filter tables by regex or similar options, and use the asset name as is.

    To add on to Marc's comment, we also are redesigning our metadata import and discovery services for a single entry point when adding assets to the catalog. This will simplify the experience for less confusion.

    Thanks for your comment. You are correct, in the case you describe it is to allow a user to add individual assets to a Catalog, to augment the Catalog with added data sets. It is recommeneded to import many Tables / Files from a given system to leverage the Data Discovery capabilities of the tool, this will allow you to select a specific connection, sub-select a Schema / Folder or set of Assets, and import their metadata into a Catalog. Additionally, the discovery services will help automate the governance (and quality) functionalities - such as suggesting Terms to describe meaning, Classifications for identifying information and inferring Data and Quality Rules.
