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.

Logging is needed WHO and WHEN downloaded a file from Sterling Dashboard or FileGateway

When debuging file flows it is useful to see how the file looked before the transformation and how it looks after transformations.

Due to compliance reasons on production systems it is necessary to see WHO and WHEN downloaded the file and viewed it's contents as it might contain sensitive information.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM.


    IBM has evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time in a reasonable time frame.


    There are performance concerns with making multiple copies of documents and storing either on the DB or FS, this would cause a major problem for our customer base. One option that could be considered is writing a custom business process to accomplish this task. You could archive the document pre and post proceessing. IBM Services could help in the design. If you have any questions please reach out to your sales team for pricing.
