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.

Support Wild Card DDE setups and Allow executing Basic Deferred as Preprocessor

Problem Statement:

Issue # 1 - Deferred Enveloping (DDE) in SPE is not supporting WILD CARD setups today. It is expecting us to define sender/receiver/ala with definitive values. Config Center UI allows us to configure wild carded setups, but they are not working in SPE. We are working with a customer that requires all their outbound data to be deferred for 30 mins and we are left with configuring hundreds of DDE profiles one for each partner/transaction combination. This increases implementation hours and also leads to support nightmare through the length of their contract with IBM. If we can support wildcard setup (which should execute as default or last resort), we can configure just one setup for them (instead of configuring hundreds of profiles)

Issue # 2 - We are currently allowing BASIC DEFERRED to be executed as "Post Processor" ONLY. We would like this to be changed so that we have the flexibility to run this as "Preprocessor".
