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.

Add TEXT/BINARY mode marker to Connect Direct log file

Current version of Connect Direct does not log the information if transmission was made in TEXT or BINARY mode. This enhancement is to add clear information about used mode (TEXT/BINARY) to the log in CTRC record

How will this idea be used?

Based on the log file, users will have clear information if transfer was performed using TEXT or BINARY mode. This will help to troubleshoot transfers where data was received in format other than expected.

    Arsalan,

    We have not been able to move this enhancement through our backlog into a deliver yet. It does remain a backlog item that we intend to deliver in the future however.

    Thanks,

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I've reviewed this with my team and we are in agreement that this request is reasonable and more detailed CTRC records would be beneficial to our broader customer base. I will accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
