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.

Map Interchange Contrl#, Group Contrl# and Transactionset Contrl# to Rule Macro

We have a list of macro functionality to use in the routing rule configurations in BPN.  for example SUBSTRING, destinationfilename, DATETIME etc. 

Often times we get request from trading partners to use Interchange Contrl# in the destination filename being sent to them via FTP,SFTP or any other protocol. Having this macro will be easier to meet their requirement by simply providing #InterchangeControNumber. in the macro expression

The implementation, PER and support teams will be benefited if this could be made available.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

A user will enter the Expression ( #InterchangeControlNumber) in the rule whenever a trading partner requests that information to be part of the filename.
