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

HL7 pack for WMB v7.0

Desire to build enhanced auditing monitoring capabilties. If messages can be visible that were actually propagated by the HL7OutputNode ( if functionality is added to operational monitoring tool that will be great)

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate. Despite not being able to justify the business prioritization of this feature request up to now (no further votes on this RFE since it was initially raised eight and a half years ago), we still feel this is a very relevant usability enhancement. In future we would still like to offer the ability to configure monitoring events on subflow udns so we'll continue to monitor. Status of this RFE is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Yes I see this as a very good use case, I think the key here is to get access to the actual message that was propagated. We can add support for this by adding an output terminal to the HL7Output node which propagates the completed HL7 message (completed with leading/trailing bytes). The key use case is then to wire up that terminal to something like a queue so that the messages can be logged. Alternatively the message can be captured using the Record/Replay feature in Message Broker v8. The Record/Replay approach has the advantage that the built-in web administration application can be used to search/filter messages and optionally replay if required.
