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.

Track Internal Users on PEM When PEM Registration Invite Sent to partner

Currently many users (MFT BA's & Engineers) are utilizing PEM, the number of users utilizing PEM may increase in the future. So there is a need to define a process or mechanism within PEM to track which internal EFX user is sending out new registration invite via PEM t. Currently many of the TP registrations are just sitting in 'Approval Pending- Approve/Reject' status. So if we have a way to track who sent the registration that would be great.

How will this idea be used?

If we have a way to find out who sent the registration that will be used for security reasons and also following up can be made to partner if any additional information is needed.

    Given that we have announced end of market of the SaaS option for PEM, I don't anticipate that we will be getting to this enhancement any time in the near future.

    I assume there is some mis-communication here.

    As we are using SaaS PEM we dont have view to check which user sent the invite registration to partner. So we want to know, by looking at partner profile we should know which internal user sent the invitation registration. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for your suggestion. As we are moving toward Single Sign On for PEM in future releases, we anticipate that establishing separate logins for PEM will become fewer as most customers will want to manage their PEM access in a similar fashion to how they are for SFG and B2Bi. As a result, moving forward, we believe the need to require sponsor users and partners to register will become less of an issue.
