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.

Display of Protocol Profile ID in Inflight for the Inbound Flows

Currently Inflight displays the Protocol Profile ID for the Outbound flows in the Protocol Started Event of the file processing. When we receive the inbound files from any of the Communication Protocol, Inflight displays only the Protocol Name, POD and Process ID. If we want to know the Protocol Information for an inbound file, we need to go to the POD and need to search with the Process ID to find out the Protocol Profile ID. If we are getting the display of Protocol Profile ID information directly in the Received Event of file processing, it will save time in finding out the protocol information quickly

    I was about to raise RFe for same reason! This is so much needed I believe.
