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.

Retrieve Routing Channel Templates from target SFG applications

How will this idea be used?

We hard-code the RCT that will be used in the PEM activity to onboard the SFG partner. This is not a feasible option since the Sponsor should have the ability to assign one or more RCT to the Producer and create one or more Routing Channels. In order to do this, PEM should have the ability to retrieve from the target SFG application all RCTs that are setup. This may be stored in PEM DB and updated once a day since creating new RCT is not usual and modifying existing RCT is not possible if Routing Channels are already associated with them in SFG. So, if PEM can store the RCTs for each target SFG system (as defined in the API configuration), it will make it efficient for the Sponsor to create the Routing Channels for each partner. For Static Routing Channels, the Sponsor will also need to know all SFG partners in the target application. This should be retrieved from the target SFG application at time of on-boarding so the Sponsor will have the option to choose the appropriate Consumer for the Static RC for the Producer.
NOTE: This has dependency on the REST API that is available from B2Bi/SFG to return all RCTs and all Partner User Names

    This is intended for release with the PEM Standard 6.1.2 release scheduled for release in early Q2 2021. The PEM Standard release will include the ability to create routing channel templates in PEM that can then take advantage of the APIs now available in B2Bi.
