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.
Control Center Certificate Expiration Warning Notification
The Certificate Expiration warning rule that comes with Control Center produces a warning if a Connect Direct Secure Plus certificate is going to expire within 60 days. However, there is no known notification for Control Center's certificate which...
Password Vault support for Control Center database user
Due to security requirements and best practices, passwords should be changed periodically and wherever possible, should not be stored on local systems in text/XML files, etc. Control Center should have an option to utilize external Password Vault ...
Add System Business Process from SBI to the BP list in Control Center
The idea is to be able to choose from the drop-down list of BPs to monitor, the processes of the Sterling B2B Integrator system so that ICC is the tool used for this purpose and not have different systems that also work differently with the Alerts...
Allow ICC to authenticate users via group membership (eg. using SEAS)

Improve Control Center Rule Administration
In Control Center 6.2 rule administration can only be done via the Web console. If a new rule or an existing rule is updated that contains a list of servers, there is not a pick list. There is a search, but each server the user wants to select can...
ICC New datetime field - Custom API
The bank is trying to leverage the ICC SLC process to track whether a file has met its SLC.We are having applications (ie. SFG components and other custom applications) raising MQ events with time stamp to start and end SLC of a file.We then wrote...
Eliminate the compatibility issue between ICC and Dynatrace monitoring.
The compatibility issue between ICC and Dynatrace prevents use of Control Center Webconsole. Only remediation is to disable the Dynatrace UI agent on the application node. We use Dynatrace for monitoring of all our Sterling Infrastructure and woul...
Passing B2Bi Process data to SCC
SCC currently can import a single item from B2Bi Process Data. However, with the use of an Xpath statement multiple process data items can be concatenated into a single string item with optional delimiters or other markers. Sadly, SCC does not hav...
Error Suppression for Similar Errors
ICC treats each event independently, but when one issue causes many failures (e.g. remote Trading Partner server down), users are alerted for each failed transfer. There should be logic to suppress similar errors within a specific time window.
Adding new indexes to database for enhancing performance.
The current DB settings seems to be insufficient for production environment. The performance dramatically enhanced after adding them during DB analysis made by our DBA team. I have raised TS001613070, and IBM Support agreed to add these indexes bu...
