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 "receive" functionality to the Transfer a File option when using Connect Direct Web Services (CDWS)

How will this idea be used?

The Transfer a File option in CDWS can only be used to send a file, but not receive. Receive functionality needs to be added to this option ASAP. My understanding is that CDWS is supposed to be more user friendly. Not having receive functionality in the Transfer a File option means that users must use the Build a Transfer or the Send a Transfer options.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement. I'm pleased to announce that it has been delivered in CDWS v6.2.0.1 which is available on IBM Fix Central portal. Please download/apply that maintenance to start using the receive file functionality that was requested.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that your request to provide "pull" capabilities within C:D Web Services similar to what's available in C:D Browser would be valuable. We will accept this enhancement request and will look to add it to the roadmap moving forward.
