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.

Pick up additional messaging from Connect:Direct for z/OS

Starting Engine
We are in need to have IBM Control Center pick up additional messaging from Sterling Connect:Direct for z/OS record ID ‘PT' to capture a Secure Plus handshake failure. Currently the z/OS puts out the record ID=PT for the messaging.
Command: select statistics command for C:Direct z/OS recids="PI,ZI,CH,CI,DP,FP,FS,FT,IF,JI,NM,PS,PX,SB,SD,SI,IK,IT,ST,SW,TI,TS,UM,UU,CT,MC,RJ,RT,ZT,PT,TF,TL,TW,QH,QE,QT,QW,CX" limit=10000 startt=(06/07/2016, 13:36:56) Host Name: API Port: 1363

For an example with the CSPA202E message, we are picking up the initial record ID=PT and will work most of the time. But when the short text of the CSPA message contains the text &VAR we do not. The &VAR is the reason. What we are looking for is the interpretation as to what the &VAR is and have the need to pass this information to someone via email who can investigate.

Command: select statistics command for C:Direct Windows

By default, the CSPA and CSPE record ID's were not setup to obtain this information. We changed the ../conf/services/nodes/statrecordids file and added and to the CSPA and CSPE recids and recycled IBM Control Center and are getting the information we need.

What we would like to see is the interpretation of the &VAR1 and &VAR2 variables as part of the message field in the PT record ID so we can key on this for an email notification.
