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.

Get Availability by tag (inventory identifier)

IV does not currently provide availability by tag. It does support taking supplies/demands by tag.

OMoC will generate the TagNumber and pass it to IV for supply/demand updates. IV will store them as OMoC had provided. However, you will not be able to request availability by tag number.

Note that OMoC generates TagNumber as an aggregation of the tag identifiers. For example, if you have LotNo and BatchNo as the item's tag-identifiers and createOrder is called with LotNo=L1 and BatchNo=B1 in the OrderLineInvAttRequest element, OMS by default will set TagNumber (aka tagNumber) as "L1|B1" when making the demand update to IV.

For supply sync/updates to IV, you'll need to use the same logic as OMS to define the tag number. Or you can use your own logic to determine the tag number and implement the YFSGetTagNoUE in OMS to use the same logic.

But again, IV only supports showing availability across tags. So even if an order is placed asking for L1|B1, the availability will be across all.
