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.
Enable DVM Studio to be able to quickly capture environment data needed for problem resolution
We are sometimes asked to provide detailed information for a Case we have opened on DVM. Information includes the current build, IN00, trace browse, map definitions and sometimes the underlying data that is causing the issue. If functionality wa...
Support retrieval of data from IMS Secondary Index using DVM IMS Direct
We have in-house applications that stores data in an IMS Secondary Index database. The application would like to use DVM to retrieve data from their IMS INDEX DB. Currently in DVM V1.1.0 using IMS-Direct on an IMS Index is not supported. Applica...
Server Trace profile values should be tied to a specific subsystem
While in the ISPF Server Trace, I can set profile values in order to limit the number of records being viewed. These profiles should be specific to the subsystem that I am currently connected to instead of a global variable that applies to the IS...
Return sql warning when zero/spaces are returned for invalid values in host files.
DVM allows us to turn on parameters like SQLENGIVZERO and SQLENGDFSHRC to handle situations where the underlying record contains invalid values or is shorter than the table structure. In cases where DVM converts values under the covers, a warning...
Only allow the creator of a given map to delete it
Currently any user that has the ability to create maps also has the ability to delete them regardless of who the original creator was. This coupled with the current view in DVM Studio that displays the entire subsystem instead of just a subset ...
Currently all logic within DVM is encapsulated with the SQL statements. This limits the amount of logic that can be handled within DVM and forces us to potentially make multiple distributed calls to DVM to complete one unit of work. By adding (o...
Currently we access Greenplum using the JDBCGateway. WE have seen numerous abends using this method. Also a bug has been identified using the UNION ALL in JDBCGateway. Please build in Greenplum support
Currently, when implementing web services, the final step is to refresh z/OS Connect. The refresh will make available all web services that have been added to DVM regardless of whether the supporting area want them to be available. For example, ...
Currently, when new web services are added, z/OS Connect must be refreshed to recognize the existence of a new operation or group of operations. The refresh must be done by issuing a REST call to /dvs?Refresh. Ideally, there should be a way to i...
Allow for the creation of a Web Service directory as part of the import
Currently, a Web Service directory has to be manually created on the DVM subsystem using DVM Studio before web services can be migrated. Any steps that cannot be accomplished during the import (either JCL or REST call) is not guaranteed to be rep...
The customer is migrating from Shadow to DVM and found out the hard way that SP calls are not supported under DRDA. Switching all the SP calls to RRS is not acceptable due to overhead and non zIIP eligibility.
