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.

Extrainfo2 Report on BPN Automated Report Configurations

As part of the existing BPN Reporting we have options to pull Externalinfo1 report on BPN Automated Report Configurations, but it has been observed that although we have Extrainfo2 report listed on BPN, we do not have stored procedure for the same on the database. We got update from L2 that the report had never worked before.

Currently, we have requirement at our end where customer is asking us to list maintain data on Extrainfo2 field and send those details along with the outbound activity report. Since Extrainfo1 has been already used for the customer, now we would like to have the new data stored on the External info2 field and the same should be accessible from Extrainfo2 report. We are trying to store IDOC numbers from outbound XMLs onto Externainfo2 field and access the same through Extrainfo2 report which would give us the ACK status against IDOC numbers. Now, we are trying to write the IDOC numbers to External info2 field through typing maps.

So, if we can have this report enabled then customer will have easily supportable and economical solution.
