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.

Extend processcontrolcriterias CDWS web service in order to run simple transfers on-the-fly

Currently in CDWS the "processcontrolcriterias" web service allows to run Connect Direct transfers using processFile with path to *.cdp process file which must be present on the server prior to Connect Direct transfer execution.


For simple transfers this is inconvenient and forces user to create and maintain local *.cdp files on the server. CDWS should allow to submit the transfers on-the-fly by sending process definition as the HTTP data.


A new webservice should be created with basic functionality supporting: from, to, sysopts, pre-post tasks features.

How will this idea be used?

This will simplify Connect Direct transfers execution process a lot. Users will not have to maintain local set of *.cdp files.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed this request thoroughly with my team and we believe that adding the ability to build a process on the fly via our REST APIs would be a valuable enhancement. We will accept this and look to add it to our roadmap moving forward. Thank you for leveraging our RFE tool and please don't hesitate to open new requests for other ideas we should consider.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
