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.

How will this idea be used?

The end user many a times tries to unprovision the codelist by mistake while others are still trying to update it. We need to restrict the usage of the unprovision button and move it to a higher level of access . If not done then system leads to inconsistency and needs manual database update to resolve the issue which can be a time consuming process.

    We are currently considering this in two phases. The first phase would be to address the issue with the un-provision issue by providing a two step process with un-provision providing a "warning" message asking the user if they intend to Unprovision and asking them to confirm. This will help to prevent accidental "un-provisioning" actions.

    The second phase would involve us considering additional user roles that would allow for such controls over certain actions like un-provisioning.

    We are approaching the issue to provide for a faster resolution to the original concern while continuing to work on a more long term and complete solution.
