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.

Consideration of BPN Field's : MapList1, MapList2, MapList3 for adding more Mapnames

We have a BPN Field: MapList which accepts only 256 Characters. We need to consider the new BPN Fields: MapList1, MapList2, MapList3 etc. in future for adding the mapnames when one of the MapList field has more than 256 characters.

How will this idea be used?

We have a BPN Field: MapList which accepts only 256 Characters. When we need to add the additional map name in the Maplist Field, we need to shorten the existing map name and need to add the new map name to accommodate the 256 characters. This approach is not good when we have some flows working in the production environment. The idea of having MapList1, MapList2 etc. is to add a new mapnames and not to alter any mapnames in the existing MapList field.
