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.

Request for debugger in Map Editor

I was developing the map and it broke the whole system. Upon requesting for for information regarding the process, I was told that because the issue is not with the map editor but with the map, every thing is fine and ticket should be closed.

I have 2 points here to discuss regarding this issue. First, I would request to add debugger into the map editor so that developer can see how the program (in or case, map translation) is progressing and how the developer can fix his/her logic to achieve the final objective.

Second, I understand that map editor is a tool to the whole application SI. If I run map test in my application, it should create an instance of the program and that instance can either time out or error out. The application, in any case, should not let the instance keep on running and consume all the memory.

In addition to point two, and as per my case, I ran the map test and instance was created. The instance kept on running and later I terminated the instance forcefully. Then also, the instance kept on running (without any entry in any queue) and brought the adapter to halt. This instance brought the communication bridge down instead of failing itself. I understand this issue severe and at the application side. I request you to have a look at both the points and take appropriate action.
