Enhance ALTER STOGROUP DROP ‚storage-path’ with optional specification of the Path_ID
As you may ADD the same path multiple times to a storage group (in order to have multiple containers of a single tablespace within that path), it should be possible to even DROP a single reference to that path from the storage group as well! But s...
With the memory statistics similar to the ‘db2pd -dbptnmem’ output within the STMM logs, it would be possible to get memory usage report over time from Db2 perspective without any permanent monitoring tool (as long as STMM is used/active). It woul...
IBM Data Studio needs to show and manage ALL GRANTS on SCHEMA level
Currently Data Studio 4.1.4 does not correctly show or allow you to manage all GRANTS to SCHEMA via the GUI interface. If you view properties of a User, Group or Role, under Privileges the SCHEMA tab only shows ALTERIN, CREATEIN, DROPIN, but not a...

Maintaining additional databases add complexity and cost.
Add description of views and columns of SYSCAT schema directly into SYSCAT
Good morning, may I ask You, if it is possible to add comments (SQL comand COMMENT ON ...) into SYSCAT schema views and their columns in future versions of Db2? I mean some extract of documentation ended by HTTP link to the appropriate web documen...
Please add a built-in function to reverse a string
Currently to reverse a string, we have to create a udf. The syntax for a simple one was easily available on the SQLTips4Db2 blog .... which IBM has removed. I think Db2 on z has this, and some other variants of SQL out there include it. This is th...
Currently there is no built-in function for pi. It can be calculated using math on trigonometric functions, but this is mildly annoying. Pi is frequently used when working with different random variate distributions and other functions that are in...
Lift the restriction for max 8 charaters in database name
The restriction of a maximum of 8 characters in a database name should be lifted to something more adequate for todays devops pipelines, say 32, 64 or even 128 chars. There is a need to give databases a more descriptive name than what is possible ...
