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.

Improve on C:D z/OS the caching all of the RACF userid support on the File Transfer incoming traffic

To reduce the allocation time of a file, would be better to implement on the C:D z/OS the caching of all userid that RACF (ACEE) support on the inbound traffic, that is basically to memorize the accesses and minimize the queries to the RACF
Proposal is for C:D z/OS Caching all of the userid that RACF support on incoming File Transfer traffic
Use Case :
The goal is to reduce the query time to RACF by avoiding I/O to get the same ACEE over and over, this time is clearly perceived by the difference between the both "ZI" and "CI" Record ID.  
Event Type=Process Started                     
Statistic Record ID=ZI    
Description=Process Started
Event Type=Process Step Started                           
Statistic Record ID=CI   
Description=Copy Step Start
Obs.: See more information about this on the PMR 28837,228,631
Business Justification:
Addresses slow after upgrade from version 5.1 to 5.2 (PMR 28837,228,631 )

    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.  We feel that making this change would weaken our security capabilities which would not be beneficial for the broader market.  I do appreciate you opening this request and would encourage you to open others in the future if you run across additional suggestions that you'd like us to consider.
