IBM Sterling Ideas

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.

Enhance SWIFTNet7ClientResend business process to update previously failed filegateway deliveries

Currently SWIFTNet7ClientResend will be triggered via the SWIFT Adapter Scheduler to look at the SWNET_MSG table for failed PUT transfers to SWIFT. Upon detection of these types of failure the scheduler will trigger an execution of the SWIFTNet7ClientResend business process. This process will then attempt to send the failed file to SWIFT, if successful the dashboard SWIFTNet correlation records will be updated to indicate that the transfer has now been successful. However, if the initial failure to send to SWIFT was off the back of a filegateway delivery protocol to send the file. If the SWIFTNet7ClientResend is successful the filegateway delivery will still remain with a status of failed and therefore, lead to inconsistences. The enhancement should allow the SWIFTNet7ClientResend business process to resend the file and when successful update the filegateway delivery protocol from failed to complete.

How will this idea be used?

This will prevent inconsistencies within SBI between SWIFT transfers and filegateway in the event of failure and resend. Ties up the relationship between filegateway and swift for file transfers and prevents database differences
