IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

GOC should have the intelligence to know when to generate a rebind not using option (A, M, N) on the panel which causes unnecessary rebinds generated

Rebinds should be generated when needed not by using option (A, M, N) .The help panels and user guide have been updated to clarify option "A" means "All relevant. Run the rebind on all packages that reference any of the modified objects." Option "...

Control DEFER YES/NO based on type of index

Provide mask to control the DEFER setting based on the UNIQUERULE(SYSINDEXES) of the index (either via REXX or standalone). Currently the REXX won’t handle this because the Db2 catalog row sent to masking is the SYSINDEXPART row which doesn’t cont...

Remove messages such as Grant(source): Grantor=CONTROLM Grantee:DB2DEVGP (Not propagated) from the Compare Report. Compare Report should only list what is going be changed.

Generate DDL for implicitly created XML tables and tablespaces

Today Admin tool cannot really handle implicitly created XML tables and tablespaces very well. It's very obscure to really understand what parameters were used when creating the table or if they differ from the source table. Using OCT via GOCCMDDF...
