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.

Need sku exclusion ability in create cycle count program api

Create Count Program API doesn't have SKU exclusion and inclusion list.

Note : SIM UI ability to alter the program is required or not, we will confirm.

How will this idea be used?

SKU exclusion will allow the store to exclude specific set of skus during cycle count generation.

    Please let us know you need any further details, if we update the value manually in Production, any item feed will override again the velocity code. The solution suggested will not work for long term and more stores. please let me know you need any details.

    @Niveditha, Updating manually the velocity code is not scalable solution, we need a sku level exclusion criteria in the create cycle count program api end point. please check and let us know the feasibility.

    For the items which needs to be excluded, can you please check if the velocity code can be changed and once the count is completed you can update it back to velocity code A.

    Current Cycle count program has ability to exclude location type, velocity code

    we need feature to exclude some skus from the included velocity code.currently we dont have selective sku exclusion from the already included velocity code.

    for eg. below create program include velocity code A, we would like to exclude few set of skus which has velocity code A

    Please let us know if you need any further details.

    We need sku exclusion and specific bin number exclusion in the Create count program api.

    Business wants to exclude /include specific SKU's/Location while generating cycle count. These should be optional field.
