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.

Limit CM-BACKUP to Defined Number of Backups

This would benefit all users of SSP who have the configuration managers set to backup on startup within the System Settings CMSystemSettings global tab. Right now SSP creates an unlimited number of backup. This requires users to run separate scripts/automation to clean up the backups. This should be managed by the application creating the backups and configurable by the end user to define how many backups to keep.

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

This would be used to limit the number of backups taken by SSP on every startup.

    Hi,

    We have looked into this request in detail and we feel that it is a reasonable ask and a good addition to the product. However, we are trying to figure out the best way to get this done and timeline of delivery. So for now, I have put this Under Consideration. As something changes, I will announce here. Meanwhile feel free to use this tool to log in more Enhancement Requests with us as you see fit.

    Thanks & Regards,
