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.

Add RequestType UnprovisioningRequest for each protocol (Unprovisioning API)

There is no way to unprovision a setup in SFG from PEM currently. This is a common request from clients. Following the PEM architecture of the codelist integration with SFG there should be a "Delete" configuration which then initiates an unprovision request to Partner Provisioner. The provisioner activity could then be configured to properly remove that configuration.

Call Direction Change

Description: Ability to change call direction after initial setup

Gaps in OOB Activity: The OOB activity does not allow for a call direction change. Once the account has been setup there is no ability to change the call direction.

Gaps in PEM: There is no unprovision request type that is sent to provisioner when a connection is deleted. Ideally this would model the configuration for unprovisioning codelists. When a configuration is “deleted” then an action should be sent to PP with RequestType UnprovisioningRequest and the appropriate subresourcetype.
