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 for zOS copying files to SNODE (Linux or Windows ) at the same time using a '*' mask to individual datasets

The client SERPRO would like that was possible in Connect:Direct CDP pull a list of datasets that meet your dataset mask with the '*' (for eg. ABCDEF*.TXT)and based on that list of datasets that match then to start copies each of the datasets one at a time to a Connec:Direct for distributed platform, like Windows or Linux.

What is your industry? Government
How will this idea be used?

The SERPRO would like to submit multiple files transfer copies just by a use a mask like (*) as I explained above.  The PNODE is C:D zOS and SNODE is SFG.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us.  I have reviewed it with my team thoroughly.  Unfortunately we won't be able to accept this request as it's not technically feasible to use a wildcard in these types of transfers to non-z/OS platforms.  The required external utility is z/OS-specific and isn't available on Windows or UNIX/Linux.  I'll need to reject this due to these technical limitations, but please don't hesitate to open future enhancement requests if you think of other changes we should consider.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
