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.

Connect Direct File Agent: Add a search function to search on File Agent rule names

Please add a search feature for File Agent so if we know the File Agent rule name, we can search on it and then select. This would easier than using the scroll bar or using the wheel on the mouse especially if a File Agent configuration has numerous rules.

    Thank you for opening patience as we worked on this enhancement. I'm pleased to say that we were able to deliver FA rule search functionality as well as many other key enhancements with our v6.2 release. Please upgrade to our latest version to gain the benefits of the other improvements.

    Thank you for commenting on this enhancement request. It was accidentally updated with an incorrect status. That has now been corrected and it is listed as Planned for Future Release. I'm sorry if this has caused any confusion or concern.

    Why is this not under consideration? A search function has been long overdue. Please explain.
