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.
Allow mapping of character fields > 254 Bytes in CDA
Currently Classic Data Architect (CDA) skips over any COBOL Copybook field greater than 254 Characters. It does not issue a warning or error it just skips the field and goes on to mapping the next field. This request will have CDA map character...

Log updates replicated by CFC1 writer tasks to the target file's logreplicate logstream
If an application owner asks if you can verify when or if a specific update was replicated to the target site, there isn't any diagnostic information available to confirm if/when the update was replicated, since the updates applied via a CFC1 writ...
Suppress DD-level accounting information in the SMF type 30 EXCP section for individual DDs.
We found that E-Private SP230 Key0 storage growth was occurred in IIDR Classc Capture service.
It was due to SMF type 30 EXCP information at DD name dynamic allocation.

Exit with non-zero return code or abend after a subroutine or other abend
IMS CDC terminates with a zero return code after one of its IMS subroutines abends -- 'playing havoc' with customer replication processes and schedules.

It would be very helpful to have the possibility to code some generic names in the Classic Change Data Capture for IMS z/OS in the parameter field SSIDEXCLUDELIST.
In some cases, customers need to code several hundred or thousands of names which ...
