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.

Allow variable use in arrays

WTX does not support the use of a variable in an array. So this request is to add this feature in future WTX/ITX releases.
That is, a variable can not be used in an indexed field.
For example, you can not use Name[INDEX($)] or Name[x], where x being a variable.
Only a defined numeric value is allowed for referring the ranged fields i.e Name[1], Name[2].

This feature will be beneficial for the whole WTX community as this would save a lot of time and efforts for the developers.

    ITX already has this as a function.  The implementation is via the CHOOSE function which returns the object in a series (array) whose position in the series corresponds to a specific number as a single integer expression.  Does this meet your particular need?
