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.

Re-auth indicator is needed to differentiate Auth and Re-auth for Card Brand Compliance and to get the auth fee waiver

Setup Authorization expiry of 7 days for BankCard Tender in configuration in OMS.


Create Order with BankCard Payment Tender.

Let Order gets Schedule and Release. 

Authorization of Payment happens once Order is released. During this Authorization request, Bank Card Service has charged Retailer with $1 value .


Let Order be in Released status for more than 7 Days.  Since Auth expiry is set to 7 Days, existing Auth get reversed and new Auth will be created. Since there is one more transaction between Retailer and Bank Card Service, Bank Card Service has charged again retailer with again $1 Value.  


For every week,  existing Auth gets reversed and new Auth is created, every time Retailer is charged with same value.


Bank Card Service is willing to give fee waiver to Retailer for Re-Auth scenario. i.e., for every Re-Auth scenario instead of charging same amount it wants to reduce the amount.


Bank Card Service needs some indicator from Retailer request to identify which one is new Auth and which one is Re-Auth, but due to limitation in product Retailer wont' be able to send this flag.
