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.

Automatic Control of Sessions between the client and partners to avoid Wait Sessions

If the client has in netmap configuration session limit defined and the partner has in their netmap configuration session limit different from the client, it will leave the process in wait and sometimes depending on the volume, Connect:Direct will be in stuck.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it and your support case with my team. I see that support guided you towards configurations that were stable which I believe will be the best path forward for this request. Best practices would indicate that partners should coordinate the number of sessions they will allow so that excessive process queuing doesn't occur. From a technical perspective we don't have the ability to override configuration settings for a remote node if they exceed the number of sessions that your local node would allow so that guidance is the best option to avoid excessive queueing and potential errors when a node is overloaded with external session attempts. Because of that I must reject this request.
