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.

Enhance C:D Rest API cdwebconsole/svc/processcontrolcriterias to allow definition of symbolic parameter values

The current approach enables to execute a static/hardcoded locally stored CDP process.

This approach is very limited as for example you cannot specify a specific file name in a copy step to be transferred when executing. Therefore please extend the REST API to be able to provide symbolic parameter values much like you can do easily using CLI and the submit statement.

How will this idea be used?

To leverage locally stored generic CDP processes including symbolic parameter for the generic approach. Enabling the rest api to define symbolic parameters values allows to make use of a generic CDP leveraging symbolic parameters.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe this would be a valuable enhancement to Connect:Direct.  I will accept this request to enhance our REST APIs to allow symbolic variable submission as an uncommitted candidate.  This will be added to the C:D roadmap moving forward and we will contact you when it is available.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
