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.
During an analysis of the application, it was observed that "DmClient.exe" do not have Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) enabled. ASLR is considered a security best practice for memory management and can prevent buffer overflow attacks. La...
The application "DmClient.exe" executable was not using the DEP protection. Since DEP is disabled, arbitrary exploit codes can be written and executed from memory location leading to attack, such as buffer overflow, among other attack vectors.

Proper Error notifications for CDC capture and apply SQLCODE
We recently had issue where CDC plan on Zos Capture was bound to a wrong collection and resulted in one capture referencing the metadata of another capture. Case TS008690724. when this happened a +100 sqlcode was shown in the capture log but there...
CDC for Zos is not supporting TLS V1.3 for AT-TLS. After talking to IBM, CDC Java and Access Server use Java 8, which supports up to TLS 1.2. So, CDC doesn't not currently support TLS 1.3. I was asked to raise an enhancement request for this
A Truncate Operation in source is not getting captured if the target is file system. We need the Truncate Operation to be captured with as Event ID 9505 (Since it is a DDL operation) and the truncated records to appear at the target as "D" records...
