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 an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

More granular enforcement SSL encryption for DRDA and Native Db2 z/OS REST applications.
In a recent VA scan of one of our systems one of our DB2 subsystems were flagged due to basic authentication being made available for HTTP traffic. In looking into this we found that if you point a browser at a DB2 subsystems non-encrypted DRDA po...
DB2 / RACF - Option for Less informative RACF / logon messages
A recent Pen Test via DDF returned the normal responses - Invalid User, Invalid Password, User not authorised, etc.
We are being asked if this can be replaced by a more generic message so as to not give any clues to a fraudulent logon attempt.
Request for RUNSTATS SHRLEVEL REFERENCE with SAMPLE to update RTS TOTALROWS
Recovery to PIT or to current, and non-standard recovery methods such as DSN1COPY or DF/SMS dataset DUMP/RESTORE from flashcopy backups can leave TOTALROWS set to 0, NULL or invalid values. Trying to run something like a REBUILD index relies on TO...
