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.

Display Partner Communication Details under Inflight Event Details Section

Currently, We can only see Partner protocol profile ID and communication POD Process ID details at the final delivery step ( Protocol Started Step in Inflight ) while delivering the outbound document to trading partner.


Since these are Internal information only to IBM support team, Client wants to display partner communication information ( For example : SFTP URL, Directory, HTTP URL etc., ). This really helps client to track where we are delivering the document on partner side.


We are already tracking few events such as "Sent", "Picked Up" after the protocol started step in the Inflight. When updating the status back to Inflight, We can enhance the existing SFTP delivery BP's to update the above Partner communication information to process data to track this information under Event Details section in the Inflight.
