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.

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.
REST API Server Adapter

When installing SCC/IBM Control Center 22.214.171.124 on RHEL, I noticed that while there is a "silent" installation option that will allow for more automation, there is no corresponding option for configuration. Running the exportConfig script gets you ...
ICC Support of SMTP with SSL/TLS encryption
Most modern SMTP Service require SMTP/s to leverage their services. IBM B2Bi supports this but ICC does not. This makes it hard to find an SMTP service that meets or clients email needs.
InFlight - Add Protocol Process ID as an addable column on search page
Adding Protocol Process ID as a visible, searchable field in the results page would allow isolation of traffic by connection for easier troubleshooting. This would be beneficial for both clients and support, and seems like it should be easy to imp...
Validate API for Managed SSL Cert and Managed SSH Key
The out-of-box PEM Portal activities have options for Partners to upload SSL or SSH Keys. In case of a user error, a partner may upload an incorrect file. In such a scenario, the API to store SSL Cert or SSH Key to PR fails and there is no way to ...
