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.

Implement 'Hold' for a bulk product order for up to 30mins (or XX mins) as per OMoC SF ticket TS002131182

Add following functionality for 'On Hold' bulk items up to XX mins.  As per following scenario ... We have created a remorse hold, to hold order's for 30 mins. To resolve the hold, we have created hold processing agent which is abstract transaction of process order hold Type. And part of the YFSProcessOrderHoldTypeUE code of the custom agent, we have added custom code to check whether to resolve the hold or not, if the condition is not being satisfied hold will not be resolved. In that case if the hold is not resolved, available_ts in yfs_task_q is getting incremented by 15 mins. After 15 mins passed, we could observe the custom agent picking particular record based on available_ts in yfs_task_q and once again checking whether to resolve the hold or not, if the condition is satisified hold will be resolved, else once again available_ts in yfs_task_q will be further incremented by 15 mins. This behavoir is happening for single order.


But when we trying to validate the behavoir for bulk orders, what we could see is agent is not immediately picking the order after the available_ts is passed in yfs_task_q. Due to which time to resolve the hold is increasing upto 1 hr.

Ex: available_ts in yfs_task_q is at 12:30, for bulk orders we could see agent is picking the record at 12:37. And if the load is being increasing further the agent
is picking the record at 12:47, which 17 mins more than the available_ts.
