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.

Configuration Center:Disable Deploy button when while import is in progress .

Hi Team

Please disable Deploy button when while import is in progress .

We had urgent situation where even through the values are present in the Codelist map is unable to fetch the Values.So we tried to undeploy and Deploy it agian and it worked.

L3 infomred that Root Cause of the issue was : Deploy is currently enabled for a codelist while an import is in progress is how the system behaves today

To avoid such issues happeing in feature, an Exception should be poped up while doing that Deployment that there is Import in progress (or) Disable the Deploy button when the Particular Object import is in progress.

This is related to Defect:

Sev1 case :TS003549721

Coloration Case no: TS003550356

Please check and let me know if you need any further information.

How will this idea be used?

We have encountered many such situations were codelist entries were not found by the map and there is no way that support can understand if the deployment was actually successful until customer comes and report us .
