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.

User Accounts with limited access control to Sterling File Gateway components

Sterling B2B Integrator should provide options to create & assign DENY permissions to Sterling File Gateway components.

At present Sterling file gateway does not have the options to create permissions for specific components. We'll have to use the out of the box groups which preassigned permissions.

There are areas in business which require access to visibility at the same time restricting access to developer components, for example, A user from a client relationship business area would only want to monitor the day to day files, however the user should not have access to create/edit/delete partners.

With such limitations, its difficult to attain the level of access control the customers request for.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

This will be used so that users won't have the ability to remove groups, communities, etc.
