ADB27C panel constraint/primary key column flag

On the ADB27C panel, give the user a facility (or let them know upfront) whether any columns are part of a constraint, index or anything that requires “extra work” (e.g. Having to use UP,DP to update, etc.

Control DEFER YES/NO based on type of index

Provide mask to control the DEFER setting based on the UNIQUERULE(SYSINDEXES) of the index (either via REXX or standalone). Currently the REXX won’t handle this because the Db2 catalog row sent to masking is the SYSINDEXPART row which doesn’t cont...

Provide a way to run CM Batch with CAF, so that the RRS limitation is bypassed and DSNREXX can be used in REXX verification exits.

In the Db2 Administration Tool v12, under the “Db2 system catalog” option, on the “Application Plans” and the “Table Authorizations” menus, the “?” line command does not work like it does on other menus. It returns an “Invalid line cmd” message.

DROP Aliases listed with a single DROP command

Hello IBM In Panel ADB21A you can list ALIASES and there are some line commands. One of them is DROP. In some cases our DBA would need to drop a whole bunch of ALIASES at a time. And it is quite uncomfortable to acknowledge all of DROP one by ...
