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.

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.

The costumer's DBA team want to avoid any new tablespace creation not using Partitioned by Grouth Universal Tablespaces. As MAXPARTTITIONS is not a suitable override mask, we try using a REXX verification mask in the form: VER,TS:REXX(ADBDSIZE, DB...

Object search screen - lengthen space for object names

Currently, the length of a table name or similar object is limited to 18 characters. This is an outdated standard since Db2 can accept much longer names. The pain point is that it's difficult to view or search for tables and impossible to copy/pas...

Line command '?' does not work on all menus, should be made consistent

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 ...
