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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portal, please send email describing the issue to for resolution. For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit

Allow configurable settings for how large lines of code can be written inside Map Policy (Ref #CS2751743)

Gateway script can be written inside a Map policy to take care of the complexity of the source and target Data structure through Code. But adding lines of codes API will through the below error due to large size of the code..

{ "httpCode": "500", "httpMessage": "Internal Error", "moreInformation": "The assembly Map action failed." }

After checking the DP logs we got this stack trace.

Now the only way to overcome this to increase the size of the inline code of Map policy somewhere in the Product as suggested by Ops team.
