IBM Food Trust Forum

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 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.

Generic Header feild with Name:Value options in the Swagger Connector interface.

We have deprecated the Validator tool which the clients could use to validate their xml syntax. In the abnsence of which, their only option is to use Swagger-Connector API (i.e ) to analyse their xmls. This will actually ingest data into IBM Food Trust Blockchain which is immutable. The only way to delete that data is, if they were to use the following Header

header 'IFT-Test-Namespace: XYZ'

in a curl or postman API call, details listed here -->     )

Note: the option to use IFT-Test-Namespace header is currently only available via scripting API calls to the connector.

The swagger connector interface currently only has IFT-Entitlement-Mode and Signature as options for headers.

It would be very useful to have a generic header with Name:Value pair on the Swagger-Connector interface. May be a drop down with pre-defined options?

Currenlty, our VGO clients have no option but to ingest data into prod and analyse the errors. It might be the cause (overheads in IBM Food Trust Prod env due to errors in client data) of some of the production issues seen with Rabbit-MQ (I am guessing here).


Thank you.
