Make a formal Feature Request

0. Sign up for a Liferay account

Liferay will be using Liferay Ask to receive new feature requests.  Liferay Ask requires a Liferay account in order to post new feedback on Liferay Ask. 

1. Make feature request on Liferay Ask

In order to provide a feature request, create a new post in the Feature Requests sub topic on Liferay Ask.

2. What happens after I have created a Feature Request ticket?

Once the feedback has been evaluated, a member of our product team will respond to the post and provide a link to a Jira ticket if further action is needed.

Depending on this evaluation, the feature request in Jira could be marked as:

  • New Idea: A feature request has been opened but the triage team has yet to confirm receipt and triage the request.
  • Waiting on Information: Product manager is waiting for additional information from the reporter in order to further evaluate the feature request.
  • Under Review: Product manager is reviewing the request.
  • Reviewed: Product manager decides about the resolution of the request.

Reviewed Feature Requests will have one of the following resolutions:

  • ALREADY IN THE PRODUCT: The problem / need is already addressed in the product.
  • PRODUCT HIGH PRIORITY: The problem needs to be addressed ASAP because it is an urgent customer issue or a severe gap in the product.
  • ALIGNED WITH ROADMAP: The request is related to something we are already working on (Now, Next or Later initiatives)
  • NOT A PRIORITY: The requests makes sense for the product but is not likely to be addressed in the next 12 months
  • NOT ALIGNED WITH THE ROADMAP: The request is not aligned with the product vision
  • INCOMPLETE REQUEST: The necessary information for evaluation was not included in the ticket

3. What should I expect next? How can I help?

Once a request is triaged the original requester will be notified that their feature request was received and the request will be tagged in Jira with the relevant components and assigned to a product manager.
It is also possible for the community members to vote for the new feature in Liferay Ask.  If a feature is also of interest to you please be sure to vote for it.
