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.

DB2 LOAD/IMPORT should support z/OS

With DB2 Connect you can easily execute DDL from a remote workstation to create/modify existing z/OS DB Objects. However, when you need to delete and recreate tables while keeping the data (and ALTER ist not an option) it is necessary to open a TS...

db2 "export to employee.del of del modified by coldel\t select * from test1"

DB2 Export cannot export data with a two-digit delimiter (\t). If I want to export data separated by \t, DB2 will not be able to support it

ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE should immediately fail or at least warn when source table is ineligible for SWAP

Even after upgrading the database to Db2 V11.5 and beyond, older tables with check constraints and/or generated columns that were created before V9.7 will still cause the SWAP phase of ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to fail with SQL0668N reason code 10. The und...

Use package collection other than NULLID for CLP and Db2 Utilities

Db2/zOS colleagues want to get rid of lock issues with rebind of packages in schema NULLID, thus the decided to have Db2/zOS release specific package collections to provide actual and rebound packages for every Db2 release to the distributed (Db2/...

db2logscan should be able to read compressed logs

The utility db2logscan, which is now bundled with Db2 is not able to read compressed logs. So with compressed logs we cannot estimate the recommended sync settings for HADR.

Add Runstats Check functionality for DB2 LUW objects (similar to Reorgchk) to determine if a table really needs runstats or not

DB2_DMU_DEFAULT=IMPLICITLYHIDDENMISSING, if set at instance level then we should not need it to be specified again in import command just like 9.7 clients

We are facing an issue for version 11.1. FP5 where we are able to load the data into a table with a column in a table which has IMPLICITLY HIDDEN column, In the past we were able to run the import and not specified the column name and it has worke...

Allow a WHERE clause for ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to delete data while moving a table

One of the most painful things to do is to delete a huge amount of data. One workaround for this is to export the data needed and then LOAD/REPLACE back into the same table, but this requires an outage of the table to accomplish.If a WHERE clause ...

Provide the option to exclude SELECT statements from db2audit when collecting DML data

The painful and expensive IBM recommended workaround that ended up not being feasible was to create event monitors (multiple so that records can be cleared) with WLM. However, the volume and format of output generated by the event monitors is diss...

Allow load modifier options in db2move load (generatedoverride identityoverride usedefaults etc.)

Currently when using db2move utility to export from one system and load to another, there is no way to specify load options for any tables with Identity or Generated columns etc. for which we need to preserve the data values, and the db2move load ...
