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.

Select statistics with information of the XLATE name being used.

I currently use conversion tables for file transfers and receipts.
But I need to have control over the logs, which tables are being used.
Currently, I only identify in the Connect logs whether or not the transmission process is using a table (Select Statistics - Translation = Y / N)
But its not being used for that transmission or reception.
Note: In Windows version 4.2.00 had this option.

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

We have about 60,000 processes per day, but we do not know which conversion tables are being used for each process. We can have serious financial impacts on the environment due to some change in one of these tables, impacting another unknown process.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the feedback!
    This is a great news for us, as it would help a lot to have a better control of the environment.

    Please let us know when this is implemented.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe that this would be a valuable enhancement to Connect:Direct.  This will be accepted as an uncommitted candidate and I will look to add it to the roadmap as as option to log in our stats.
