IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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 vote them if they matter to you

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote 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 notifications 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Make optional to force new revision on app update in Code Engine CLI

In Toolchain pipelines, the IBM CLI and Code Engine plugin is extensively used for creating and updating apps and jobs on Code Engine projects. However, since version 1.15.0 of the Code Engine plugin, a new revision is always forced even if there are no changes. This is troublesome in automatic deployment scripts for multi app and job architectures.

Suggestion: Revert "alwasy create revision" and introduce "--force" or similar flag enabling greater flexibility. Or at least enable an override on the forced revisions such as "--on-change-only".

    Can you elaborate on what you're doing in the CLI when the new revision happens? CE has always forced a new revision on any kind of change, even just to the scaling properties, so I'm curious what your exact steps are.
