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.

IBM Sterling B2B Integrator External Perimeter Server Version details.

Logging the version details of IBM Sterling B2B External Perimeter Server either files like "PSLogger" or "StartupPS.log" or "remote_perimeter.properties" files of IBM external perimeter server.

This would be more helpful during below scenario's.

1) Investigation of any issue in the customer IBM MFT environment.

2) Most of the customers are upgrading or migrating their IBM MFT /Sterling B2Bi environments. If we have the perimeter server details it would be more informative during preparation of upgrade assessment.

When customers in-house /product implementation / support teams would like to know, to which version of External perimeter server their IBM MFT application is establishing tunnel during Inbound / Outbound flows.

These details would be value added during the investigation of any issue.

When It comes to IBM Sterling Secure Proxy external Perimeter server, it's version details are capturing the corresponding logging file.

It would be good to have version.xml to be created for IBM Sterling B2B External Perimeter server to capture the version.

similar to the IBM Sterling Secure Proxy Perimeter server in which it will create version.xml file to get to know the version of the same.
