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.
Option to override LOAD utility maintaining MAXASSIGNEDVAL for identity columns in Db2 V12
Our existing process to move data from one region to another using the LOAD utility stopped working on tables with generated by default as identity key column after we upgraded to Db2 12. The new LOAD enhancement to maintain MAXASSIGNEDVAL is c...
Allow for Multiple Columns on LOAD INTO TABLE WHEN Criteria
We recently converted from BMC to IBM Db2 utilities. It would be very useful if multiple column names could be specified on the WHEN criteria for the Db2 LOAD utility. This would also make the functionality similar to the WHEN criteria of REORG ...
Allow for UNLOAD SHRLEVEL CHANGE and REORG SHRLEVEL CHANGE to be compatible wen executing on the same partition
We are running very busy environmenet with IDAA being frequently refreshed by loader with increamnts of inserted records. In addition, we are using the DB2 automated housekeeping approach with the DSNACCOX stored proc implmentation to manage and t...
Improve DSNACCOX procedure and DISPLAY command to provide correct information
This idea is a result of case TS002735466 and is being opened as recommended by IBM Support.
Currently, there is an undocumented limit of the internal buffers which are managed by DB2 and which are used when processing DISPLAY DB command. When it...
Automatically Perform a Display with Claimers when Utilities Cannot Perform a Drain on an Object
We recently migrated from BMC Utilities for Db2 to IBM Utilities. One feature that is sorely missed is that when the BMC Utilities would fail to drain because other processes had a claim on the object, BMC Utilities would perform a display with c...
Load Utility: Extension of field selection criterion option by AND conditions
The Db2 for z/OS LOAD utility offers a field selection criterion for the INTO TABLE option via WHEN( ... = ...).Since increasingly complex data structures are used application developers want to specify more complex conditions for selection of to ...
Eliminate Reorgs failing with S513 & IEC146I 513-04 when reorging LOBs
The cause of the S513 error is due to the DB2 reorg utility trying to write two image copies in parallel (one for BASE and one for LOB) when a BASE UTS with LOB TS is being REORG’d and the specified template for image copy datasets has the STACK Y...
"Reorg force all" should kill all existing (active or inactive) threads which belong to the object which would be reorganized
we have many tables which are changed and selected 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. So this tables need more reorgs than other not so much changed tables but it is not possible to make a reorg (force all) because there are Spufi User with autocommi...
We would like to add feature to the CHECK UTILITY to support list of tabelspaces that are in CHECK-PENDING status to be checked. In a case we have some tables in CHECK-PENDING status and the tables have RI we need to know the connection between t...
Idea For Limited Partition Locking for RI Related Objects
Lock just the partitions of related objects using a cascaded key structure when utilities are used to write to the database. Allows Db2 RI use to coexist with utility operation when it is impractical to lock all partitions of parents and children.
