Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve instance data without connecting to a regular (tenant) database
Several of the in-memory monitoring table functions and views return data which is instance-related. Still, a database connection is needed just for the purpose of having authentication / authorization / connection handle. This requires administra...
As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve the list of active databases using SQL

An analog of LOG_HADR_WAIT_TIME monitor element is needed at the agent level

Create event monitor write to table option will create new tables.All the new tables are defined in a tablespace which db2 chooses. I want an option to specify a tablesapce name, in which ALL the new tables should get created in.
Begin / End COMMIT instrumentation for DRDA, CICS/IMS
Complex CICS/IMS or DRDA transactions (involving multiple programs with an implicit Commit at the end) are incorrectly presented on the Omegamon Accounting Report/Trace. By design the costs of the tough SYNC (COMMIT) operation are added to the las...
