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.

API to GET all items having supplies for a node

IBM Inventory Visibility Service does not provide an API to GET all supplies available for a node.

In our implementaion, there are hundreds of shipnodes. Also, many old items are discontinued often. If we want to do a comparison with IV for any old items having supplies, it is not possible. This would be useful to identify items having stale inventory.

How will this idea be used?

This API would be used for inventory reconciliation. When we see any issues with stale inventory - we would get a list of all items having supplies in a node with this API - and reconcile with ship node inventory to and remove any stale inventory.

    There are requirement to maintain multiple supply buckets in IV using productClass (Good, Damaged, Display etc). In such cases, a single API to get all the supplies for 1-N item-Nodes or or node level supply list is a basic and must have requirement for store to be able to pull supply (and demand) and during the counting especially.

    With the current GET supplies API, if there are 4 supply buckets (based on productClass), the calling system will need to make 4 calls. If productClass and shipNode can atleast accept array of object, it would reduce the call from 4-1.
