Though the ITX maps are able to read and parse JSON null and binary data, it is unable to generate null or binary type fields using JSON schema. We would like to have the option added in ITX so as to create null and binary type fields like below u...

ITX - GET multiple codelist columns at once

In Sterling Integrator, we are currently able to pull multiple columns from a code list entry in one SELECT statement, as below: SELECT SenderCode, TEXT1, TEXT2 INTO VAR_SENDERCODE,VAR_TEXT1,VAR_TEXT2 FROM CODELIST WHERE NAME = "DSV_STD_EXCEED_RP_...

ITX offers ADDDAYS, ADDHOURS and ADDMINUTES to Date Time objects. I have a requirement to add seconds, but there is currently no ADDSECONDS function offered to support this. My idea is to make an ADDSECONDS function available in ITX.

Given seconds can often be part of a date time object, not having a proper function to adjust seconds as easily as minutes, hours and days seems to be a gap that should be addressed.

ITX Map Trace on B2Bi ProcessData

Currently ITX maps allow storing the Map Trace during the translation in physical location only. Similar to B2Bi Sterling Map status reports, we will require the trace available on ProcessData for error reporting purpose. This can be only the high...

Allow map tests from Design Studio to run against SPE Server

This idea would allow users to run a map test from their locally installed copy of Design Studio on ITXA installed on a server, the same way that we can currently run IBM Mapper tests against Sterling Integrator, and run Design Studio map tests ag...

MapTrace should be written to memory

Currently, there is no equivalent to the SI Map Translation Report when ITX maps are handled. The MapTrace provides similar information in that it can be used to determine the cause for failure, however it is currently only possible to generated t...

Transformation Extender to provide Map Coverage in a similar way Sonar provides code coverage.

We would like to have a tool, similar to the code coverage tools that they have for traditional code, available for ITX maps. Requirements: This functionality must be invokable both through the graphical map design tooling and available ...

DEVOPS deployment to LINUX servers

Devops has been around for a while, with automated testing and deployment. WTX should provide tool to auto deploy (similar to map build). This would take the PC tested map and allow it to be deployed to a server for further testing in a LINUX envi...

ITX - Allow MapTrace to continue after first error

Currently, the MapTrace halts/stops after the first error is encountered. This makes debugging issues and correcting input data difficult, as only one error can be fixed at a time, then the file needs to be re-run to check if there are any other f...
