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.
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.
data anonymization/masking (typetree attribute + test mode)
There are 2 requirements that lead to this idea:
1.) external requirements like GDPR force us to anonymize/pseudonymize data in non-production environments2.) A-B-testing would be much easier if we can mask dynamic attributes (e.g. timestamps)
Improve debug capabilities on failed maps
When a map is deployed and fails translation, it is very difficult to find out the reason of the failure. A clear report on what has been the failure, as the Translation service of SterlingB2B Integrator, that includes type or error, iteration cou...
Create multiple indexes in one shot
When developing and working with item(s), it could be interesting to create several indexes of an item in one shot. This is to avoid using the "add index" function again and again (which is time consuming)
Add POP3 SSL and or IMAP to TX Email adapter
POP3 SSL is useful to send and receive email using SSL , to securize data transmission by email as it will be encrypted as it is transmitted.
Most activity sectors would benefit from this feature .
For POP3 SSL , the certificates would be in the...
Make component rules validation optional, just as it is the case with restriction lists
In WTX, when running a map, there's an option to avoid validating restriction lists. Having the same option for component rules could be useful in some cases.
Turning off Audit, traces & backup (logs) dynamically in runtime
We process very large volume of HIPAA/ non-HIPAA transactions on daily basis with file size from 1KB - 2GB of data. In our architecture/ solution we always uses ITX along with the IIB/ACE product. At times our developers forget to turn off either ...
referenced TypeTree (parts)
You can build one TypeTree or one strucutre and can use it for example as part of choice-group in another TypeTree. Everybody that use TypeTree as a kind of central unit and have to reuse these structures in other interfaces will benefit.
Improve performance of SERIESTOTEXT function
Currently the SERIESTOTEXT function does not distinguish the type of an object when the same field from the type tree is passed at different level. To make things clear, below is an example of a typical ANSI X12 type tree and the 'X12 Segment' is ...
Add a feature to load codelist to IBM Transformation Extender (ITX) Design studio for local testing
We are using codelists for 90 percent of clients and currently, we do not have an option to load the codelists to the ITX design studio for local testing as we do for the SI mapping server. We are depending on CTE/Production testing to validate ma...
