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.

Data Replication for VSAM for z/OS

Diff function for produce log records after VSAM files are REPROed

Many customers are using IDCAM REPRO to update/replace the whole VSAM file during a nightly batch job. The repro operation does not create records in the logstream. As a result, user has to perform REFRESH to resynchronize the target database. S...

Limit maximum number of writer tasks that can be assigned per subscription

We had an incident where one subscription had monopolized most of the writer tasks which caused replication latency for the RMs of all the other subscriptions in that source/target server pair. Therefore, there should be a parm to set a limit for...

Provide attributes in conflict for message CECD1029E

Message CECD1029E only tells you that the attributes for the VSAM data set are different on the source and target servers. It doesn't tell you WHICH attribute it finds to be mis-matched. It would be more helpful in troubleshooting issues to kno...

Track completed UORs to improve conflict handling during a subscription's adaptive apply restart window

When a subscription is restarted, a conflict from the original failing UOR is ignored during the subscription's adaptive apply restart window, resulting in an erroneous, successful restart of the subscription. Because of the unknow state of the u...

Log updates replicated by CFC1 writer tasks to the target file's logreplicate logstream

If an application owner asks if you can verify when or if a specific update was replicated to the target site, there isn't any diagnostic information available to confirm if/when the update was replicated, since the updates applied via a CFC1 writ...

Enhance DELETE control statement to allow "older than xx" option.

The idea is to allow another option on the delete statement. Currently it accepts Start time and End time. I would like to see a 3rd option of "older than xx", where xx could be 10 days or whatever value is specified. This would allow a scheduled ...

CDA Insufficient Access Authority when logging on

Ref TS003663019 - When using CDA there is no option to log-in with read-only access so the assumption is that any CDA user could add, delete, or update a subscription. This is inapproriate for a Production Environment hence why we are experiencin...
