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.

Allow segregation of administrators to discrete lists of trading partners

Our organization has multiple business units. We need the ability to assign administrators so that they can make changes to only those accounts assigned to their business unit.


Example - Trading partners A, B, and C are assigned to business unit ABC

Trading partners D, E, and F are assigned to business unit DEF


We need the ability to assign admistrator accounts in SFG/B2BI so that only administrators with responsibility for business unit ABC can see and change accounts A, B, and C.


Conversely, only those administrators assigned to DEF can see and modify accounts D, E, and F.

How will this idea be used?

This will allow us to segregate access and responsibility for these accounts, allowing only those with a need to know to see, change, and add to accounts in that business unit
