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.

To introduce OOTB flag for backordering of remaining qty on change release

Currently in Sterling Order Management V9.5 On TO release, a shipment request is sent to WH. Two flags "ShipShipment" and "ShortShipment" will be sent in ShipConfirm message by WH. If ShipShipment is Y, OMS can expect more shipments and if ShortShipment is Y, the remaining qty on the release needs to be backordered. We are looking for an attribute on the lines of "BackorderRemainingQty" to backorder all unshipped qty from all the orderlines related to a Release. We expect to pass the ShipAdviceNo in input and not pass quantity at all. Req: We would need an additional OOTB flag in changeReleaseAPI (BackorderRemainingQty) or would need changeRelease API to backorder only the remaining qty when ACTION=BACKORDER is passed at header level and line level information not sent. (similar to changeOrder CANCEL action). Please refer to PMR:38837,227,000 for indepth details (L2 assigned ticket, contact person: Tonima)
