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.

C:D Unix Web Interface needs some adjustability for user convenience.

The ability to adjust default settings when using the C:D Unix Web Interface is needed.  Current defaults when browsing statistics are lowest-common-denominator, i.e. the viewing of records is limited to 10 by default.  Most installations are capable of displaying far more information on a single page, and it would be convenient for the user to not have to constantly go click a few places to get a listing of 50 records (for instance).  

I suggest the ability to adjust defaults in the Statistics page at a minimum:

1) set the default number of records displayed to between 10 and 50.

2) listing should be capable of auto-refresh, but this should be an option and not a default.


Additionally, for other usability options, I suggest:

1) the login page should be capable of having a default node selected, rather than having to choose each time via use of the dropdown menu.  Ipswitch' MOVEit simply saves the last node used and selects that as the default; perhaps the same could be done with C:D Web Interface.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that we can accept portions of the request.

    Adjusting the number of statistics records to be displayed and setting default nodes for the login page are good suggestions and would be technically feasible. We will accept those as uncommitted candidates and will look to roll them into the roadmap moving forward.

    We won't be able to accept the auto-refresh portion due to technical challenges that could impact performance however. For that functionality we would suggest using the browser refresh button to get updates views when needed. Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request.
