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.

Would like to be able to backorder a single line on a release

Once an order is released, we would like the ability to back order a single line. At this time we are only able to back order a full release.

How will this idea be used?

This idea would allow us to cancel a single line from an order once it has been released instead of backordering the entire order and then letting it reshop to the node.

    Hi Jake, thank you for submitting your request.

    Looking at the Javadocs, are you able to backorder a single line in a release by using the changeRelease API and passing in the line with an OrderLine/@Action = "BACKORDER" ?

    I don't see a PMR related to this request, so if there has already been discussion on a PMR, please share the number so that I can review the details.
