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.

Restore Drop Down Menu for CDWS

In CDWS 6.0.0.3 a drop down menu was present so that the user could select a remote node.  In version 6.0.0.5 this functionality was replaced by a search box where the user has to unplug the first three letters of the node name.  The user may not always be aware of the remote nodes that are available, so they may not know which three letters to enter.  Restore the drop down menu so that the user can see all of the remote nodes that are available.  The search box can be utilized as well for users who know the remote node name they want to use.

How will this idea be used?

CDWS is supposed to be more user friendly.  However, removing the drop down menu for remote nodes makes this product less user friendly in my opinion.  In CDWS 6.0.0.3 a drop down menu was present so that the user could select a remote node.  In version 6.0.0.5 this functionality was replaced by a search box where the user has to unplug the first three letters of the node name.  The user may not always be aware of the remote nodes that are available, so they may not know which three letters to enter.  Restore the drop down menu so that the user can see all of the remote nodes that are available.  The search box can be utilized as well for users who know the remote node name they want to use.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I'm pleased to announce that we've restored the drop-down menu in CDWS v6.0.0.5_iFix01 and subsequent releases. Please visit our Fix Central portal to pull down maintenance which has this functionality. Thank you very much for this request and please don't hesitate to use this tool again in the future if you see other areas where improvements could be made.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
