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 Templates should support defered tape Mounts

We use a VTL for our Tape Environment. For a VTL it is recommended by IBM to use UNIT=(TAPE,,DEFER) in all Jobs. DB2 uses templates to generate JCL. In this templates it is not possible to code a DEFER parameter. Is there a way to solve this dilemma?

Automate Online Reorgs

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

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.
