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.

Be able to delete an item from a return shipment

As an OMS user we would like to be able to delete/remove an item from a return receipt so that we do not accidentally credit the incorrect item. As per IBM team, it seems the default order modification rules in OMS do not allow to delete lines from the return shipment receipt and OMS doesn't have the functionality or API for the same. This stemmed from PMR: TS008200848

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

We will use this idea to remove any products on a return receipt that are not actually being sent back therefore reducing the possibility of accidentally crediting the customer too much.

    Hi Aaron,

    After reviewing this again, I think we should close this enhancement. I no longer see any real benefit for us and I think there are other ways the root issue can be solved that are not an enhancement. Thank you for following up!

    Hi Jake, has your dev team had a chance to review the previous suggestion? Please let me know the outcome and whether you are still have a need for this enhancement. If I don't hear back then I will have to close this request in 30 days.

    I apologize for the delay. I just recently realized all responses to me were going to junk mail.

    I will inform our dev team. Thank you!

    Hi Jake, thank you for submitting your idea. There seems to be an issue with the attachments in the referenced PMR, so I am not able to review those. If I understand your scenario correctly though, you would like to delete an item from a return receipt after it has been completed? In general, the receipt process is start receipt, receive lines, close receipt, so the validation should happen before closing the receipt. We do also have the unreceiveOrder API, which can be used for receipt adjustments.

    We have not seen this request as a common use case, and in general, we don't allow deletion of data, in order to support auditing requirements.

    Can you please review the unreceiveOrder API and see if that would be sufficient to handle your scenario? If not, could you please share additional details, including the screenshots from the PMR? You can contact me directly at
