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.

I would like to force the use of the "DEFER" option on the creation of an index (using Zparm to make it optional).

We have DBAs that at times (accidently) run a "CREATE INDEX" and fail to include the "DEFER" option. This is rather easy to do because the reverse engineering tools fail to create syntax with the "DEFER" option. The creation of indexes can be very...

Alters to objects that require reorg to material should be put into advisory reorg, such as PCTFREE

If an alter is done to a TS to PCTFREE and a REORG is not run, then the catalog is updated but the change is not materialized. This results in the DBA thinking it was done, but it really wasn;t.

The IBM provided documentation for important ZPARM of CONDBAT and MDBAT is a bit vague on exactly what to watch for these important limits. The documentation could be improved. I reviewed the documentation for DISPLAY DDF command https://www.ibm.c...
