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.

Removing specific Operator functions within Sterling Integrator

This proposed functionality is useful because it provides security from a SOX perspective for those that are and aren't members of your company and/or organization, who will benefit from this change.

How will this idea be used?

This function is for Internal/External users performing development and OPS tasks for Sterling Integrator but require further lock down of out of the box functionality that is provided by the application. We want to eliminate such access to protect resources and/or IP.

    Hello, we reviewed the request and wanted to check if you have worked with Support on this issue? Sterling B2B Integrator's dashbaord offers a set of "_DENY" permissions. If the UI has a permission it would restrict it.

    If it does not have a permission, larger UI changes would be needed than can be prioritized in B2Bi at this time. We do have plans to upgrade UI's over time, starting with SFG. We can put this in the backlog for future B2Bi UI consideration.


    Some of our business partners have also created frameworks on top of B2Bi thay may allow futher control. If you'd like to be put in touch with a few, please let us know
