Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Include repair catalog in the redirected recover

It should not be necessary to explicitely run a repair catalog after running a redirected recover. The redirected recover should adjust the version information in the catalog itself.

Restart of redirected recover

It should be possible to restart redirected recover in the same manner as you can restart the standard recover utility. When running redirected recover of a large group of tables, it is a waste of time to have to restart if an error is encountered...

Allow Template to populate output datasets such as PUNCHDDN to utilize PDSE's

If I use a listdef for an unload utility, I am forced to create a separate dataset for each tablespace in the listdef for PUNCHDDN's Template. I am requesting the ability to specify a PDSE in the PUNCHDDN and each tablespace would create a like na...

Hello! We have to LOAD a very large delimited file into a DB2 for zOS Table! The file comes from another organization and is deliverd to many companies! It uses ';' X'5E' as column delimiter and it is not possible to edit the file, because it is &...

REORG SORTDATA NO should unload to shadow datasets and not unload to SYSREC

Changing DSSIZE for large table using SORTDATA NO, unloads to SYSREC. Since the volume of data is so large, SYSREC needs to go to tape. This causes the reorg to have greater elapsed time. Unloading to the shadows would greatly reduce the elapsed t...

Allow LISTDEF to be used by REPAIR where appropriate at partition level that includes a range (1:50)

Allow LISTDEF with REPAIR, such as turning off AREO* (NOAREORPENDSTAR) at partition level. This would include a from partlevel to to partlevel. This would reduce the number of REPAIRs that need to be generated.

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.
