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.

Transfer folder between C:D nodes

Hope C:D can support transfer the whole folder to anther folder, which include many potential functions such as trasfer folder, whether includes subfolder, filter files via file name rule and create folders in the opposite C:D node. Our local file transfer provider can support this function, for example, Tongtech.

Many of our customers need to transfer folder to another server and they can decide whether subfolders are inclusive. Now we must let customers write code to scan folder and extract files and then invoke C:D, which process script includes runtask to create folders if not existed,  to transfer all files in the folder and subfolders.

How will this idea be used?

The user assign source folder and destination folder and whether includes subfolders, C:D can transfer the folder based on user's parameters.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and unfortunately cannot provide the exact capability you requested via an enhancement because of technical limitations across operating systems.  I believe this would best be handled via guidance from our support organization as a combination of File Agent and Run Tasks/Jobs should meet your needs.  Please open a PMR and one of our support engineers will assist you in how to meet your needs of transferring files contained in a folder.
