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

add getAllKeys to MbGlobalMap class (global cache)

Despite its name (MbGlobalMap) the class is lacking an important feature that most (all?) other map classes provide: returning all keys of the map. See java's HashMap.

There are already some other ERs requesting related functionality for the MbGlobalMap class: 41888, 41935. I suggest to implement these 2 together with my ER for the best user experience.

    There are many more restrictions with embedded cache in IIB. Wish IBM breaks the ice and that not only increase the IIB product sales but also the ease of implementation for the respective requirements reducing the challenges. We also have restrictions like the cache endpoints are http instead of https, and so on...
