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.

Update ExtraInfo1 Information using Rule Assignment to display in the Inflight document tracking

Currently, We can update sender/receiver/document type/reference number information using rule assignments to display in the Inflight document tracking. But we don't have any direct assignment in the rule to update ExtraInfo1 information. Currently, We are only using maps to update relevant ExtraInfo1 Xpath to update this information. For some of the flows, we have simple passthrough flows that were implemented using router rules ( without map ).

How will this idea be used?

Currently, We can update sender/receiver/document type/reference number information using rule assignments to display in the Inflight document tracking. But we don't have any direct assignment in the rule to update ExtraInfo1 information. Currently, We are using maps to update relevant ExtraInfo1 Xpath to update this information. For some of the flows, we have simple passthrough flows that were implemented using router rules ( without map ) and we are missing ExtraInfo1 for these flows.

    In my case, We want to update sub document type or additional tracking reference number or client internal partner codes etc.,

    With the thought to use these for simple pass thorugh flows, what type of info would we be expecting to populate with this? I am assuming that in this case, the info may be a bit limited so we are looking to get a better understanding of the value if this were to be implemented.

    If we are considering supporting this requirement, please support ExtraInfo2 and ExtraInfo3 as well. Please don't limit it to ExtraInfo1 only :)
