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.

Adding Email Body via BPN ST tool

There are lot of request in Electrolux project for email flows where we need to deliver the output file as attachment in email and also send email body with some message to the trading partners.

Currently, we use ITX map and Attachment Macro to accomplish this.. But, if this option can be added in BPN itself, we can avoid creating ITX map for it.

How will this idea be used?

Today, we need to create ITX map to add the Email body content and use attachmentMacro for setup.

Ask is to remove dependency on the ITX map, so we can send the email body with 256 Character max. via BPN configuration itself and avoid creation of multiple ITX maps for each partner.

Considering ITX map takes more time for development, this will surely same effort for mapping as well as make the process faster for implemnetation.
