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.

Need Access to PEM PR to delete the files in Library

We need to remove some of the files in the Library from PEM Partner Repository. We only have access to Upload and Refresh. However we don't have option to delete.

How will this idea be used?

When we want to decommission external partner , we don't see any option to remove files for a specific partner in PEM and PR. We are not able to delete files using API as well.

    We will need to provide some enhancements to allow for the files to be deleted as part of the purge function. I have promoted this to planned for future release.

    We are currently researching whether the purge function would work here. There is a purge function that can be initiated by the system administrator (for Cloud instances would be IBM). This would remove the partner and we believe would also remove the partner files. We are continuing a review of that and if so, would be an option to remove the files as a system admin.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I am reviewing with the development team to determine the best course of action.
