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.

mechanism to remove pending acknowledgements in bulk

We understand that pending acknowledgement records do not expire in ITXA unless acknowledgements are received or the records are manually removed using the ITXA UI. This means that any partner who has been configured to expect acknowledgements but does not send them has many pending acknowledgement records that will never be removed from the system unless done manually. Given that the UI only allows removal of 1 page at a time, this will be very cumbersome for our high record counts. Currently in ITXA production at ABC there thousands(or millions) of pending acknowledgements. These are due mostly to partner envelopes which have been configured to expect an acknowledgement but do not send them. If we had some mechanism to MASS UPDATE pending acknowledgement records with a single shot, it will help us to use the Pending Ack Report functionality. Since there is huge amount of pending acknowledgements in our system, on clicking on the Acknowledgement Status button, it takes a very long time(in hours) to open or crashed down or Do not open at all. We are looking for a solution that can help us delete the pending acknowledgements staying in the system with single shot or any other way other than deleting from the list pop up on clicking the Acknowledgment status button from ITXA. We are currently at version 9.0.0.7 of ITXA/SPE.
