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.

How will this idea be used?

As input data we have EDI file wit almast all segments optional. As output we have IDOC for which all segments are required. One of required IDOC segment id build by functional map with which as a parameter has one of optional EDI segment. If EDI input data does not contains segment A, functional map does not produce IDOC segment A based on EDI segment A. Output will be null. Finaly run map finish without errors. SAP does not accept this IDOC with error "Adapter faild tu put data on output". In this caes sould be possible tuor on output data control comptibility wir mtt definion and final message shold be "One or more outputs was invalid"

    Its not clear that this is an adapter issue. There may be a way in the map to return a failure (such as setting audits on the output). Please open a support case, and our analysts will review if this is either a quick resolution for which we can provide guidance or it may require a more significant review of your architecture.
