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.

Automatic generation of field CreDtTm:Creation Date Time in MX MSGs during sending of MSG from MER

Manual entry of MX MSGs (T2 and CBPR+) has mandatory field CreDtTm:Creation Date Time

We woud like this field filled automatically with a system date and time at the end of MSG processing in MER Facility that is when the MSGs is put in a MQ queue because this is when a MSG leaves the application and is sent to SWIFT InterAct.

    Hello Paul,

    status is changed to delivered, it means that it's done and there is new ptf or it is delivered to your team and you are working on it?

    Best regards,

    FTM SWS V324 FP3

    We would like the CreDtTM to be filled in with current date/time immediately when the user is first presented with the input screen.


    MER application as it is now i.e. V324 FP3 won’t validate = ok, unless the field is present with a valid format, and it would be a great help for the user not to have to type this field.

    Secondly :

    In our case the message must be authorized by a second/third user before it is passed to our back end application for AML, fraud screening, logging etc. After successfully passing these checks on the back end , the back end application will eventually pass the message on to MSIF service to be transmitted into the SWIFT network.

    We too need the value in the message going to our back end, just as original proposer does. We could consider having our flow assigning a value to this field at the time of putting it to the MQ-queue from which our back end reads.

    However we think the timestamp should prefilled with the time when the user first created the message. To save the user from typing in a value.

    It is manual user input and if they feel there has been too much time between creation and send then they should be able to ‘adjust this themselves’.

    Hallo Paul,

    no Securities MSGs don't have field CreDtTM but pacs and camt in DNIFINPLUS have.

    Yes T2 MSGs are also part of this request but they are in DNIMX not in DNIFINPLUS.

    Kind regards,

    Are the Securities messages that are part of FINPLUS the same as the T2 messages in this request? Please list the messages that your are referencing.
