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.
Currently, we have either the DDL or GEN commands to view the object definition. We would like GEN to be online (currently batch only) or have a new command. The action should produce the data in an online format (temporary dataset) for viewing or...
ADB25 - LISTDEF and TEMPLATE tables should be part of the system and not be allow to have DBA decide on the names

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.
The Grant message clutters the report and should only reflect what is changing and not the obvious:Compare table source(CHIC.CAN_MRN_CMP_INF_CMC) and target(LOAD.CAN_MRN_CMP_INF_CMC)No changes to TableGrant(source): Grantor=CONTROLM Grantee:DB2DEV...
DB2 Administration Tool enhancement for SQL, DDL, DML syntax checking
Add enhancement to syntax check SQL, DDL, DML before execution. Recently attended presentation of Db2 DevOps Experience for z/OS and it has a 'Smart Editor' which performed these checks. I asked about it and was told it is using macros from the...
Instead of modeling a single table space or table, for example, we want to use an entire hierarchy of objects to start building a new sets of objects. For example, we do MASSLIKE (example command name only) on a table space and it would pull into ...
On the ADB27C panel, give the user a facility (or let them know upfront) whether any columns are part of a constraint, index or anything that requires “extra work” (e.g. Having to use UP,DP to update, etc.
If I go into view the catalog object. Let's say environment UNIT for table XYZ then back out to switch environments the tool should remember what I searched on last. Or even better be able to switch Db2 groups on the search panel and not have to g...
