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.

Config center - Validation of MAP and TXO during deployment

In Config Center when we deploy a map by uploading the map and txo there is a risk of selecting a wrong map and txo which the sytem doesn't validate.
In such scenario the input file would process through a wrong TXO and would create issues to customer (Translation Failure as the map is processign through the diffeent TXO)

Scanario:

Assuming we have two maps with the below combination
TEST1.map and TEST1.txo
TEST2.map and TEST2.txo

During Map deployment in Config center if we select TEST1.map and TEST2.txo it doesn't validate and the map gets deployed in such cases all input files are processing through
TEST2.txo and would fail. To avoid such cases during deployment (when we click Deploy) it must validate if the Name (TEST1) is matching for the map and txo then only deploy otherwise
throw a pop-up "Either MAP or TXO is not matching"

Thank you,
Naveen
