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.

after install new PTF we do not need to recompile any module in PTF maintenance data sets.

hi support,
Now in BOC,we store the PTF maintenance data sets in two separate volumes, such as product Volume 1 and product Volume 2, these data sets on the volumes using the Indirect catalog.So thess data sets on volume 1 can in catalog,and others on Volume 2 can be uncatalog. we can install the new FTP in the Volume 2 where C:D is active using the maintenance data sets volume 1.After install PTF,we will restart C:D using the maintenance data sets volume 2 at the right time.And keeping the old PTF in Volume 1,we will install the next new FTP on Volume 1.
Then we have a problem.we use Stage1 Stage 2 Security Exit:DGACXSIG、DGAMGSAF.Every six months we install the new PTF.And we recompile Security Exit each.Above as an example,we will referring to this change and the last change to recompile Security Exit when we install the new PTF on Volume 1.Then the work will increase and more prone to problems.we want an enhancement request:after install new PTF we do not need to recompile any module in PTF maintenance data sets.
