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.

Enhancement\Fix to ICC XPath Functionality

NOTE: This applies to the IBM Sterling product line, IBM Control Center (ICC) but I cannot find the product family that has this. The previous B2B & COMMERCE entry is missing so I can't select.... Please see PMR 52919,082,000 for a history of what was done thus far. We are submitting an RFE to follow through on the suggestion. As part of that PMR we learned that the ICC product will evaluate an XPath on ALL steps which causes severe performance delays when trying to use an XPath function. IBM has enhanced the product to only run on the LAST step but this is not always the one with the business process data. Please fix this solution so it can run against only a single final step that has process data or however is it best to design.

How will this idea be used?

Implement an XPath in an ICC business process and have it run correctly when BP data is in a different step than the last one.
