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.

Option to Ignore Column Order in Object Comparison
Object Comparison should allow you to ignore the column order when comparing tables. Columns can be added to tables in different order between Test and Production databases. As long as the column definitions match, you should be able to ignore dif...
In comparing databases from one environment to another there is likely a list of changes we do not want to apply yet for a variety of reasons. The resulting compare creates a change ID. The tool allows us to delete these statements. However, the p...
