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.

Enable Bulk Download of EDI Source Documents

The current process in IBM Sterling Inflight allows users to download individual EDI source documents from the transaction detail view. This works fine for individual file testing and reviews. An option to select multiple transactions and download the source EDI documents would allow use to use multiple files for EDI transaction testing. For example, if I wanted to review all ANSI X12 830 documents that have come in over the past 30 days, this option would allow us to download all of those source EDI documents.

How will this idea be used?

This idea would be used to capture more than one EDI source document in a single retrieval rather than having to pull source documents individually. These files could be examined and/or modified to run through a map/maps in the CTE environment in bulk rather than one at a time.
