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.

SFTP known host key fetch through Legacy InFlight instead of POD

Currently we do not have option to fetch known host key while setting up SFTP profile on Legacy InFlight although it is mandatory to import it to profile in order to connect to partner's SFTP.

Right now procedure we follow is to fetch the knowhost key on SFTP POD and save it and import it to Legacy InFlight. But in order to make the process of setting up SFTP profile faster it would be helpful if we can have option to fetch known host key option while creating profile on the Legacy InFlight itself.

How will this idea be used?

This would be used while creating the SFTP profiles in Legacy InFlight cutting the additional steps which are time consuming.

    This RFE as it pertains to Legacy InFlight will be declined but as we plan to move forward with the Trading Partner Connection Portal, this will be a capability planned for within that solution
