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.

Need to be able to specify columns when inserting data in a table from a card.
At the moment, the DB adapter does an INSERT INTO table_name VALUES (..., which implies that we insert into all columns.This makes the map depending on the table design, and in out case, where multiple projects may update the tables, create confli...
Version information for compiled map
In my opinion each map shold have some kind of header, which include some information as version, time and date when was build or maybe other.This information should be readble from binary map by command server e.g.

New function 'QUIT()' to stop a map at a specific point
The client has requested a new function (perhaps called "QUIT()") which will stop the map at that point as FAIL() currently does, but with a non fail exit code (maybe a new warning code instead).

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...
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'...
