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.

Systems and System-related objects should be visible in the Portal UI.

There should be a way to view a system, its extensions, and profile references in the PEM Portal. This would provide users with easy access to this information as a reference when a campaign is not currently open for that system. It would also give users a more holistic view of all of the protocol configurations belonging to any one partner.

How will this idea be used?

A technical team member needs to look up the value of a field stored as a System extension. The team member can currently only do this via API.

    The ability to create, update, and provision System Configurations and Profile references is required as well. Currently the only interaction point is through APIs.

    The documentation website also needs to be updated to include System Configurations. There is no documentation on how these work and are used.

    This will be considered as we work to update the partner 360 view currently available in the portal.
