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 Ignore Column Order in Object Comparison
Object Comparison should allow you to ignore the column order when comparing tables. Columns can be added to tables in different order between Test and Production databases. As long as the column definitions match, you should be able to ignore d...

Allow for Altering the Partitioning Columns Through Panels
When altering the columns involved in partitioning a table, several steps must be done which introduces complexity and potential for errors. This is the current provided solution:Do a GEN on the table and save the generated DDL. Adjust the parti...
Prevent entry of duplicate line in MASK and EXCLUDE
Currently MASK and EXCLUDE allows for duplicate lines to be added. ADM only uses the first line and ignores any duplicate lines even though some non-key data can be different. This can introduce errors for the user if it is not noticed there is ...
We'd like to have a new ZPARM to limit the max number of version for packages. Once this number is reached a new version replaces the older one. Otherwise a COMMAND like MODIFY to facilitate DBA in housecleaning
