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.

Include Group Sender / Group Receiver ID's as configurable columns in Standard InFlight Reports

Inbound/outbound data activity and trading partner summary reports in InFlight portals tracks at Interchange level (ISA or UNB level) only. We would like to see Group ID's (GS or UNG) available in InFlight UI so that user can select those columns as needed when they generate those reports

How will this idea be used?

We trade electronic documents with same trading partners from multiple internal locations/plants. We use same ISA sender / receiver id's at the out envelope level (ISA level), but we use different group id's to differentiate appropriate plant/location. Most of our trading partners also use same ISA ID's and use different location/plant specific group id's from their side. We rely heavily on GROUP ID information to understand the location/plant in play and having that as a column in inflight reports is mandatory for my business needs.

    This is available now (sometime in 2020) for inflight UI, but not sure about summary reports.
