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.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? User will greatly benefits a lot. They are looking for this feature.
How should it work?

When a user try to schedule a IA data rule in IGC new, then it should list of schedule if already exists with that data rule. so its help user to schedule for different times and give a idea with current schedule. So they wont do duplicate works.

Mainly customer like to see list of IA schedule data rule list - this include ran and non- run upcoming schedule detail.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Currently user need to maintain a list of schedule in excel.

    The internal 'Schedule' is intended for limited use such as in development test. For serious scheduling IBM recommends an external scheduling tool of your choice. IBM provides extensive CLI/API/REST capability to support the execution of Data Rules and other DQ tasks from such an external scheduling tool. Many of our clients have a table driven process. All Data Rules can be stored in a table (or file) along with information about their run frequency. A script reads the table on a regular basis and generates the command(s) to invoke the tasks. Please consider such a solution.

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
