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.

Provide method to script the OMoC/Cloud build and deploy process

The following are the 7 basic steps for building and deploying a package to the OMoC/Cloud OMS environment. In an on-prem instance of OMS, all of these steps are easily scripted so that the admin can run one command and execute everything, that makes it much easier and more efficient to do deployments. That capability simply doesn't exist for steps 5, 6, and 7 on OMoC, the request is to change that and make it possible to ssh or whatever method into a jump host to accomplish this.


1) Check-out code and configuration from repository.
2) Build the extensions.jar from the check-out code.
3) Zip up the configuration XMLs.
4) Upload the extensions.jar and CDT zip file to the drop server.
5) Import the deployable package.
6) Import the config from the CDT upload.
7) Execute the cloud deploy to the development environment.
