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.

Rest API: Allow Redeliver by route_key (deliveryKey)

I want to use the Sterling B2B Rest API to Redeliver a single delivery from a Broadcast route as can be done from Filegateway as seen in support article: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/298739


In the B2B Rest API explore there is the uri /B2BAPIs/svc/fgarrivedfiles/:id/actions/redeliverarrivedfile which requires a FgArrivedFile Key. This is the key from the database table FG_ARRIVEDFILE which will always link up to all the routes in a Broadcast route.


Upon calling the REST API https://hostname/B2BAPIs/svc/fgarrivedfiles/:id/actions/redeliverarrivedfile Both of the partners in the Broadcast route will receive the redelivered file. This negates the biggest benefit of the redeliver is that it can isolate single routes from a broadcast.


Please create a B2B Rest API endpoint that would take the column ROUTE KEY from table FG_ROUTE.

This would ensure that a single route can be redelivered like can currently be accomplished in the FileGateway UI

How will this idea be used?

As a support representative a single route from a Broadcast route has errored and the file needs to be resent. I need the ability to redeliver to only the failed endpoint. Redelivering to all endpoints in the Broadcast routes will cause processing a file multiple times which results in monetary penalties.

The Rest API endpoint is the last leg of the process that is not automated and currently requires expensive human labor to login to the FileGateway client and redeliver the failed file.
