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.
When going through the ALTER path, Admin tool currently does not allow explicit changes to the history table, due to Db2 restrictions.
When going through the ALTER path, Admin tool currently does not allow explicit changes to the history table, due to Db2 restrictions. However, Db2 does allow a change to a column's default value on the temporal table without changing the same col...
when drop-create a unique index , start tablespace in RO to avoid duplicate keys

Compare generates an unnecessary number of REORG statements
Comparing table spaces that results in changes on the table space level generates 4 REORG TABLESPACE statements when only 1 is necessary. This can cause REORGs to run over several hours and causes the table space to be unavailable.
Have GEN and DDL generate Implicit objects but have them commented out for future use if needed
A Case was opened with IBM for GOC batch. Support could never recreate it using the DDL which was provided. It was later found out that this DB had implicit objects. The implicit objects in the DDL member provided were never generated. I am purpos...
DB2 Admin Tool - Table Space Estimator by Average Partitioned Tablespace
The current Tool retrieves the row counts based on all partitions for a PBR tablespace. Ideal Detail: It would be convenient to estimate space based on average (or the maximum) of the partitioned tablespace rather than by the total row count of al...
Generate alters for tables with Lobs without providing ddl of auxiliary table
This idea results from Case TS005582671. the problem there is, that admintool-compare cannot generate reasonable WSL for altering a table that contains a lob-column. Actually the create-auxiliary-table-statement must also be provided, so that the ...
