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.

Reset ability for Sequential number generation key in BPN Rules

Client Request :

"Hi Bijoy,
For a daily report there might be chances that more than one report might be sent on a single day and the customer wants to maintain a counter on that.
We do not want a sequence number on all the files, this is just a counter.
I cannot think of a way to even send that on the input file.
Is there any alternative that you can come up with?"

That is everyday the counter should be able to count the number of files of certain type (here, Data Type: Daily Report). And show that in the Inflight Extra Info.

In our current SI system we can implement a Sequential Key and get the number of data passing through, but we can not reset the sequential key counter. The sequential key has a upper limit once the counter reaches that it gets reset.

We will require a solution to define the Reset logic in Sequential Key , like how many transactions came in a day , from 00:00:01 EST to 23:59:00 EST , and it should reset the value to zero for the next day.

    Info like this can be determined to some extent in Business Transaction Intelligence as well as B2B Services Analytics in Customer Center.
