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.

Abandon data upload job in SCI

Scenario - User tries to upload some KPI data and proceed till Map data fields. At this stage, user got to know that he has uploaded incorrect file. Once he click on Back button to upload a new file, system prompts you to save the data feed. User don’t have any option to disregard this data feed and must save this data to navigate away from this screen.

Why is it useful?
During the SCI upload process, if a user uploaded a wrong file, and noticed that during the mapping step, the user would like to abandon the current upload and start over again. But the application does not give the user an option here: no matter what the user do (click on Back, navigate to another menu screen, or log out of SCI), the user will always be prompted with a dialog window with two choices on it: either save the current upload, or stay on the current upload configuration screen. If the user saves it, there is no UI path to delete the the save upload job from any UI screen.

How should it work?
1] User don’t have any option to disregard this data feed and must save this data to navigate away from this screen. Idea is to provide an option to the user to remove the wrong file or just want to quit the current upload without saving it.
2] User don’t have any option to remove the selected data feed. Idea is to provide an option to select the job, which need to be removed or deleted. Currently, it removes all data from the application, which should not be an expected behavior.
