This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

The power of Kafka in the enterprise is entirely diminished if the sending or receiving application does not support native Kafka sink. Without a native agent in Sterling, Middleware translation from Kafka to MQ is necessitated, effectively throttling the throughput and erasing the Kafka speed gains.
Thank you for the feedback Thibaut. I will include this in discussions with the team.
Our use case is to receive requests from a workflow engine to perform file transfers between 2 C:D nodes and to send back a response to this same workflow engine once the file transfer has been performed. This process is done in a custom BP in B2Bi
We used to receive those requests (and to send back the responses) via MQ (hence using the WebSphere MQ Async adapters) but it has been decomissioned and replaced by Kafka. Since no Kafka adapters were available in B2Bi I used JavaTask service to perform KafkaConsumer (Retrieve FileTransferRequests) and KafkaProducer (Send FileTransferResponses) operations and this is working fine. I didn't have to add a kafka-client library as it's already included as part of B2Bi 6.1 (although the library is very outdated...)
We start having some use cases of client that would like to consume messages from KafkaTopics and having then delivered as files. For now we haven't implemented a SFG custom protocol for that.
Hello everyone, and thank you for your continued interest in this topic. If you have additional use cases or scenarios you would like to share, you can post them here, or share with me directly at email@example.com. To set expectations, at this point Kafka is not in our roadmap for 2022, although we continue to have discussions internally on the topic to determine what may be possible for 2023.
Would be good to get a view on when this would be prioritized in the backlog, also if needed we could submit a business case to support the prioritization process.
Any updates on the integration to Kafka
Hello and thank you for your interest in this RFE. Sterling OMS support for Kafka remains a backlog item at this point.
We continue to discuss this topic internally and will share any related roadmap updates once available.
Any updates on this kafka integration support from Sterling?
Any update on this???
With kafka is widely used messaging platform now a days, it is very much required a kafka adapter for integration.
