This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.

Since this was last opened we have added Variables to ITX starting with version 10.0.0.2 which can be manipulated and used on all runtimes using wither the Eclipse-based UX (Design Studio) or the Browser-based UX (Design Studio). Here is a Permalink to a short video showing how they can be used: https://community.ibm.com/community/user/supplychain/viewdocument/video-flow-variables-and-flow-var?CommunityKey=e4917433-f91d-4969-85dd-206313686d8d&tab=librarydocuments
Additionally, for customized reporting of errors thrown by type tree the ONERROR function can be used in a Component Rule for reporting precision. For example, in one of our Compliance Checking maps we use ONERROR throughout a tree to capture error levels and reporting codes (But the error could easily specify a field name or any other text). Here is an example:
Between ONERROR and Flow Variables with Flow Variable Mapping Functions you have many more tools for tracking and reporting on the inner-workings of ITX maps.
Also - there was a mention in this AHA! regarding the trace size. If you are still using the older text trace, please check out Binary Trace which is much more compact: https://community.ibm.com/community/user/supplychain/viewdocument/easier-trace-in-itx?CommunityKey=e4917433-f91d-4969-85dd-206313686d8d&tab=librarydocuments
We will consider others for future releases
GETMAPDIR is indeed implemented as GETDIRECTORY().
All the others are not there in any form...
