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.

Please provided Win2016 Certification for the Connect:Direct File Agent (CDFA) utility

IBM Connect:Direct File Agent v.1.4 (CDFA) has not yet been officially certified for Win2016 by IBM.
IBM Connect:Direct for Windows has been officially certified for Win2016 by IBM in the latest fixpack. As CDFA is a utility that IBM provides to be used in conjunction with Connect:Direct, CDFA should also be certified for Win2016.

    Thank you for your interest in this enhancement to C:D File Agent.  I am pleased to announce that we have delivered this capability in iFix 028 for File Agent which was released on 04/30/2018.  You can retrieve this maintenance from IBM Fix Central website which I've linked below.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we are aware of the issues with installing File Agent on Windows 2012 R2 and newer systems.  I have added a link below to a workaround which will allow you to install File Agent on Windows 2016.  FA does run properly on Windows 2016 after taking these steps and is fully supported.

    I will also accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to update the version of InstallAnywhere that we use so that Compatibility Mode wouldn't be needed in the future.  Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us.
