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.

Order Optimizer support for UI upload of configuration files and file ingestion status checking

Create an Order Optimizer UI option for users to upload and ingest configuration files in Order Optimizer. This same UI should show the status & details of the file ingestion process for all files (e.g. job running vs. complete vs. error, last status change date & time, error codes, last user to update, option to download a copy of the last file, etc.)

This UI should be an alternative to uploading files via Aspera for manually maintained configurations (i.e. files maintained by end users and not fed by another system). However Aspera ingestion should continue to be supported for all existing file feeds sent in this manner. This UI should show a status for all file ingestion, whether sent via Aspera or uploaded in the UI.

This upload UI should be controlled via role permissions so the ability to upload can be restricted to a subset of users.

    While there is no user interface available to users to check the status of file ingestion, Order Optimizer has the ability to notify the sender about the status of file ingestion. With this capability in place, the necessary level of visibility has been provided as senders are informed of the time of ingestion and status of ingestion.
