IBM Data and AI RegTech Ideas Portal

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

Post 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 notification 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.

CPA005 Transaction Rejected in FTM Base but Accepted by Gateway in PFS layer (Refer WorkItem Work Item 114946)

During AFT application development, we found that FTM Base rejected transactions where getting accepted by Gateway in PFS i.e. FTM Base Rejections are not considered by Gateway for updating a payment's status.

We raised a RTC defect 114946 for this and did not get a fix for the same as this was supposed to be a fundamental change in the CPS flows.

However this is not a correct behaviour as FTM Base Transaction and it's related FTM PFS Payment are not in sync with one another.

We expect that Gateway Engine consider's FTM Base transaction status during ingestion.
