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.

Bulk Upload of Users

Why is it useful? Currently, we are limited to add maximum of 5 users by filling up the First Name, Last Name and Internet Email ID individually. As we are actively on boarding the different business units across IBM Systems Supply Chain Organization, the ability to perform a bulk upload of users either through an excel file or csv file will be a more efficient way to perform bulk users management.

How should it work? A template could be setup consisting of the user's First Name, Last Name, Internet Email ID and Role, thereby enabling anyone performing Users Management to leverage this template to perform bulk upload of users, and the upload result should be immediate providing a feedback if all the records in the template were successfully added or rejected because the user already exists in the system, or it doesnt match the information in the organization's directory.

How will this idea be used?

As an SCI administrator managing the users management module, I should have the ability to perform bulk upload of users through a template with an immediate feedback system to enable a more efficient process.

    The ability to upload a list of users (up to 1000) via CSV file is now available through the My IBM page "Manage users".
