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


What is your industry? Financial Markets
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.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. Your request may not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme aligns with our current roadmap and, as such, is being tagged for future consideration.
