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.

Include API monitoring/output in CD Logs

API connects to the CD product can be for File Transfer submissions or stat gathering for another use such as log checks. These API have a max value configurable on the local node entry in CD netmap file but currently there is no logging of API activity in the CD logs to be able to monitor values/session limits or otherwise which could help in determining the values assigned or log monitoring to be notified of any issues.

How will this idea be used?

log monitoring can be set up to allow any issues in session breaches to be identified, any hung session or any slowdown of service due to low API settings.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it with my team and reached out for additional details quite some time ago. Unfortunately we didn't receive a response so my assumption is that this is no longer needed. Because of that I will decline this request. Please don't hesitate to use the RFE tool to request other enhancements you'd like us to consider moving forward however.
