IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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 product management 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.

INFORMIX AUTO INDEX

When no suitable index is created, the optimizer does an "auto create index" for the query. This proposed index should be printed out to the online.log to help the admin to create the optimized indexes for the queries.

Unload to file should have option that prevents over writing of an existing file

Allow MAX_PDQPRIORITY to be configurable per user.

We want to Informix to be able to use PDQ but we would not want 3rd party logins to be able to use PDQ and impact processing. The existing onconfig parmeter should be a default is it is not defined for the user.
