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.

Increase the maximum number of statuses displayed in InFlight

The number of statuses displayed in "New" InFlight needs to be increased to what it is in "Legacy" InFlight.  The attached Word doc. shows the difference between what is displayed for the same document in "New" and "Legacy" InFlight.

How will this idea be used?

When there are AS2 connection issues, we are not able to see the full history for a document.  This is very important in trouble shooting.  When there are more than 25 statuses, it stops displaying them, so the last one displayed does not even match the current status.

    It is possible to view a maximum of 50 statuses, however, this is still not enough when there are multiple retries doing FTP, for instance.  The last status in the File portion of the screen might show "Success" and the Event is "Scheduled for Retry" or "Retry Started".  The TRUE status in the Document detail portion of the screen is "Failed" if it runs out of retries and the process stops.  This needs to be changed so that all the statuses show up in the File portion of the screen until it is either truly successful or it fails.  Perhaps some maximum needs to be in place in case of unending loops, etc., but this maximum has to be much higher than 50.  Perhaps 500 would be reasonable.  The current limitation does not allow the user enough visibility to trouble shoot.

    Agree it should work the same. Routing to engineering for evaluation.

    Is anyone else having this problem?  If so how are you working around it?  Why is it not an issue for you?

    Suggestions welcomed.
