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.

Retrofit the Enhancement Request CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" to CD v6.1

This idea CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" was previously raised for CDz CONDIRECTZ-I-8, and it was informed that it would be available in v6.1. However, after the upgrade to V6.1, it was informed that this enhancement in CDz will only be available in future version V6.2.


This Enhancement Request CONDIRECTZ-I-8 was raised on 2018 which is the most popular CDz enhancement requests with 21 votes. Technically, CDz L3 suggested that retrofitting this enhancement should be both easy and low risk. Therefore, it would be really if this enhancement can be retrofitted in CD v6.1.

How will this idea be used?

If this idea is implemented we will restrict the use of most SNODEIDs to the ACIDs used by the production job scheduler. This will prevent unauthorized use of SNODEIDs as explained in the idea description.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team. We determined that there would be more risk and effort involved with porting this than your original discussions may have included. Because of that we will not be able to back-port the SNODEID control enhancements back to v6.1. I'll need to decline this request, but I would encourage an upgrade to v6.2 to gain this and other advantages that were introduced with that release.


    Sincerely,
