PINNED Add support to controllerWorkflow script to restart BPs that are in "completed, error" state by individual BP IDs
During system issues, we are unable to bulk restart the BP IDs at a time. This is causing huge support effort in the clean-up process. Existing controllerWorkflow.sh script doesn't have a solution to restart the BPIDs that are in "completed, error...
PINNED Present Multiple Host Keys - RSA and ECDSA
As with standard Linux servers today Secure Proxy should be able to present Host Keys (more than one) in both RSA and ECDSA formats depending on what type the vendor incoming connection supports. Vendors are demanding Host Keys that are stronger t...

OM Next gen + IV to support CARRY/DEL delivery methods

Existing OM supports multiple delivery methods, but next gen SaaS plus IIV only supports SHP for availability. A simple fix as an interim solution is send delivery method SHP to IIV so that it returns that availability back so that DEL/CARRY metho...

Increase PNUM limit to a much higher value (e.g. 1'000'000'000)

PNUM is actually limited to 99999 for most CD implementations. This is very low and has for effect that pnum can rotate very quickly. ICC is for example relying the grouping of CD events on this Process ID (which is a non sense as it's not unique,...

Improve the search filter options that are available when resubmitting and resending documents in the InFlight application

The search filters are limited when "Input files to restart" and "Output files to resent" are chosen. These search filter conditions need to be the same as the filter conditions that appear in the "Search for Documents" section.

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) T...

Feature to close bulk PEM Portal and Provisioner Activities

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.

Looping Functionality for Dialogs (UI, API, XSLT)

Many times it is not possible to know the number of times that you need an API to execute. Looping would allow the execution of an API or UI dialog to be dynamic. This could be utilized in a great number of use cases, one of which I outlined below.

Report to pull last accessed/last login time for all partners

There seems to be a lack of reporting on historical activity of users/partners in Sterling to be able to determine if an account is active and when it was last active. I'm currently trying to pull a last login/last accessed timestamp for each user...
