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.

Add the Tag Mapping Labels to the Search Filter

Control Center 6.1.1.0 iFix03.  When you create a tag mapping and tag label, the label only displays in the view column.  When you select the add filter, the drop down displays as Tag1 Tag2 etc.  So only administrator of the application know what the Tag maps to.  The add filter for tag mapping is unusable for end user's of the application, as they have no way of know what column is mapped to each Tag. 

IBM supports support states:

Currently when applying a filter the drop-down list is generated from an internal table, not from the tag mapping database. Since there is currently no link between the drop-down and the database, an Enhance Request would be required to have a change considered or implemented that would have the drop-down list linked to the database.

How will this idea be used?

End Users are requesting the ability to search completed B2Bi File Transfers by Producer and Consumer.  While we have added the tag mapping and label to the product, the mapping label only shows in the view column.  If the tag label is added to the filter, they will be able to quickly generate a summary of all files completed file transfers by Producer or Consumer.  Now they only have the option of utilizing Tag1 Tag2 etc and have no way of know what that tag is mapped to.
