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.
Support for Type=simple startup method in systemd for Connect Direct
The systemd is the default system manager on RHEL 8. Connect Direct should support service startup through systemd using Type=simple startup method. User can use Type=forking with external (custom) startup script but this requires to create additi...
automapper should also work with same input/output types
It is a common pattern to work twice on a output card, e.g.:- when the output should also include summarized amounts of several output records that need to be built/calculated first- when the header should announce how many records will follow Now...
Autmoapper from output to output
The automapper is very useful, but only does input to output. In some cases, we need to prepare mapping in one output card, and enrich it later in a following output card. Currently, it can be done but needs some cards copy and moving, and this wo...
enhanced PARSE function
In order to use the new PARSE function as a replacement for the old RUN(submap) constructs, the PARSE function should have similar behavior as RUN(submap). This essentially requires 2 enhancements: 1.) We need to pass arguments to PARSE like "-F21...

Show more detail, on progress bar, when using IIM to upgrade B2Bi
Upgrading B2Bi v6.0 to v6.1 took almost two hours. For the majority of that time, IIM's progress bar sat at (about) 60%. It would be helpful to see what it's doing or even update the progress bar more frequently.
A new WARN() function, which would work similar to FAIL()
I propose a new function WARN(), which would work in a similar way to FAIL() and end the map with a specific warning code.
Connect Direct Adapter auto recovery
Case TS003985405 was raised to report that the Sterling B2B Integrator Connect Direct Server Adapter does not auto restart if the database connection is broken This leads to file transfer failures and requires a manual restart of the adapter If th...
Allow page refresh on any page within Store Engagement
If you perform a page refresh via the browser or code, it loads the default Store Engagement page and you lose the view of where you were. It would be useful to allow a page refresh within any page of Store Engagement to reload the current context...
Does IBM have the capability to attach an 864 or 824 to an original OB doc in IBM when a 864/824 is sent back by a customer to highlight the said errors
Does IBM have the capability to attach an 864 or 824 to an original OB doc in IBM when a 864/824 is sent back by a customer to highlight the said errors? Similar to how a 997 is attached to document in the "Document Detail" section of Inflight. Ba...
