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.

Rollout UI - Allow rollout to Sponsor

The Rollout Activity API allows an activity to be rolled out to the Sponsor. This allows a Sponsor to execute an activity requiring a partner interaction.

The web UI for rolling out an activity does not have this function.

How will this idea be used?

There are use cases where we can define an activity workflow for a Sponsor that does not involve a partner. Currently to run these, we require the Sponsor be added as a "partner" so they can run activities. This means the same email address can no longer be used as a Sponsor admin.

Being able to rollout an activity to a sponsor using the web UI would mean the Sponsor Admins can remain sponsor admins while still being able to run these activities.

    We currently have some options that would allow a "dummy partner" to be assigned as part of a REST API. This is not available in the UI.

    As part of the enhancement, we will look to disassociate the need for a partner for rollout out an internal activity and make changes to the rollout wizard.
