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.

Control Center List processes in Rules

In an environment like ours, we have numerous file transmissions that are monitored by Control Center. There are several process names that we ignore by having a rule where the action = no operation. One option is to build multiple rules that are set to match on a distinct process name. Another option is to build a rule where the operator is reg ex and list each process name and separate the process names by the pipe symbol. While either of these options will work, option 1 can result in numerous "ignore" rules and option 2 can result in a long reg ex string and can be messy to deal with.

I would like to be able to list each process name in a separate line in the rule definition, but when this is done "all" of the conditions of the rule must be met in order to be satisfied.

Currently rule parameters have three columns: key, operator, and value. I'm not sure how to word this, but can something be added where it allows the user to say either "all" of the information must be true or "any" of the information can be true?
