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.

Allow devtoolkit_docker/runtime/ApplicationManagerClient/client.jar to be downloaded directly from the SST

This is an issue for Mac developers after each cloud devtoolkit upgrade. The problem for Mac user is we have to rely on devtoolkit_docker/runtime/ApplicationManagerClient/client.jar to open the configurator. However, every devtoolkit upgrade, the client.jar must be upgraded to open up the cloud level configs which means the local setup has to be redone by installing the new devtoolkit. This will impact Mac developer's performance and will cost a day to setup the local again. Is it possible to include the latest client.jar as a part of the devtoolkit zip, so that Mac developers don't have to setup the entire local every time after the system upgrade?

    Hi Jiandong, on OMoC 2.0 platform, the client.jar can be downloaded separately. However, this feature does not exist on 1.0 platform. As of now, we have not planned to build this feature on 1.0. Your issue will be resolved with upgrade to OMoC 2.0 platform.
