Add Option to Migrate Datasets that were Recalled as Part of a Scan

Please add an option so a user can specify that the LAT job submitted migrates any datasets (thinking archive log datasets here) that it had to recall to complete the scan. An example would be where a user attempts to scan multiple days in the pas...

Add Ability to Generate Report Showing INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE Activity by AUTHID

Please add the ability to generate a report that can summarize INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE activity by AUTHID. This would look similar to a summary report, but instead of reporting counts by table, it would be by AUTHID. It seems currently the only way t...

Add Ability to Generate BIND Statements for Inadvertently Freed Packages

We are looking for the Log Analysis Tool to have the ability to find packages that have been dropped (which it can do already) and use this information to generate BIND statements to more or less undo the freeing of said packages. This could be se...

How can the objects be reported on when doing a QUIET TIME report using CORRID.

Using Quiet Time to recover objects for a CORRID. The report only has the available quiet times, but not the objects that were updated and need to be recovered. Need to run a summary report to get the objects.

First of all please include Log Analysis for red hat in your Product pick list. Second, I have successfully implemented role-based access control (RBAC) for Log Analysis. The development team sent me instructions. I would like to see this RBAC in a future release

We operate in a multi-tenant environment. Users do not want to see (or in some cases not permitted to see) events unrelated to their roles. IBM developers have come up with an ingenious way to implement RBAC for Log Analysis.

Reformat the SYSCOPY Report in INFOM ddname to be a single line instead of two lines

Option to decompress data with Fastpath

The "FastPath" option for detailed reports is very useful for avoiding costly roll forward or roll backward processing.However, for compressed tables the compressed data is shown and the user have no easy way to decompress the data. We suggest an ...
