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.

Identification Number (TCH RTP Instruction ID) is not filterable/searchable in Inbound Transactions

Identification ID is not available as a column and Search filter when displaying a Transaction in FTM Digital Payments.

The TCHRTP Instruction ID is written to the FTM field called Identification Number; this field currently only displays in the Inbound Transmission Hierarchy General Tab; this is a critical piece of research information that warrants it’s own column in Inbound Transactions and should be filterable/searchable.

We realize the TCHRTP Transaction ID is written to the Alternative ID which does display on Inbound Transactions as a column and is searchable; but the Transaction ID does not always match the Instruction ID by design.

This issue was originally reported in IBM case TS002561742 with the following comment:


This has been determined to be a request for a product enhancement. Per product architect, TCH has both a Transaction ID and an Instruction ID.  We deemed the Transaction ID as the more likely to be searched on, so we put it in the Alternative ID column which is filterable.  The Instruction ID is put into MICR_FIELD_7 and it is not currently filterable.
