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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
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.
Ability to trigger the Supply or Demand buckets inventory picture for an item on demand/need basis
Currently client systems are subscribed to supply change and demand change events from IV over webhooks to reflect inventory buckets for client front end needs. For any missing events due to any reason, there is no functionality in IV to retrigger...
Allow Connect Direct processes "Waiting on I/O" to stop consuming a Thread (similar to how SFTP operates)
In order to expand usage of Connect Direct inside B2Bi, Connect Direct processes need to behave similar to other protocols. Connect Direct consumes an entire Thread (queue watcher) the entire time a Connect Direct transfer is occurring. With other...
TLS 1.3 communication between Control Center and Connect Direct Nodes
add the ability to monitor / configure (communicate) between Control Center Monitor / Director and Connect Direct nodes via TLS 1.3. Today CD nodes of all OS varieties support TLS 1.3 and no versions of Control Center support TLS 1.3
Include an Identifier to differentiate between the Inventory dbavailabilitycache message triggered by a delta vs full sync(publish_all trigger)
In our integration with IV services, we encountered scenarios where a full sync is being consumed by MW system and in the interim delta change comes in, the delta change processing is delayed because of the lengthy processing of full sync messages...
Monitor Aspera Nodes
It would be great idea if we can have monitoring enabled for Aspera Nodes and secure proxy, the reason I would say is as Aspera provides one of the MFT solution which enables us to transfer huge data and since it has the ability to do so lot of or...
Enhance Search Abilities for InFlight Archive
It is EXTREMELY difficult to find documents in InFlight Archive because there are such limited search options. When looking for data, I most often search by envelope name or map name. Neither of those options are available. We also have many partn...
It's regarding the Product SPE or Config Center - Outbound Envelope Search with the filter Next Envelope
ConfigCenter Envelope Feature Existing: In Outbound Envelope Search scenario in Config Center, there is no option for searching outbound ST/GS envelope with the GS/ISA envelope as Next Envelope. Problem: We have worked on couple of cases where Cus...
Unable to create the connect direct partner using custom protocol from B2Bi REST API
We are trying to create connect direct partner via custom protocol using B2BI rest api. We are unable to add below values which have comma(,) in middle while creating the partner in custom extensions RemoteDCB:(RECFM=FB,LRECL=160) RemoteDISP:(NEW,...
Propagate configuration via batch
This new idea is to request that Sterling Control Center Director allow configuration propagation, in this case from Connect:Direct (userfile, netmap, InitPams, Secure+), via Batch, and not just via the graphical interface.
Populate DestinationFilename in Inflight view for FINISH flows
The DestinationFilenames are populated only for the flows those have delivery rule and not for the one thats are STOPPED/FINISH in GIODE. During System Testing, it will be helpful to check the DestinationFile name where ususally flows are FINISHED...
