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.
We run the Compare on an integration test system and transport the created workstatement list in Converted format (action_convert_to_read_wsl = 'Y' ) to each target system. There, we make any necessary adjustments, e.g. to the schema or the databa...
Require Change to Primary Index When Primary Constraint is Changed in Alter Session
Currently when an alter is performed on the primary constraint for a table, Admin Tool will warn that a corresponding change should also be performed on the primary index. However, you can back out of that warning and generate WSL which does not ...
Allow Exclude criteria to be directly specified in ADB2GEN
We are driving automation by dynamically building a list of objects to 'GEN' the DDL for. However we also need to dynamically build a list of objects to exclude. Currently ADB2GEN only allows reference to a pre existing exclude which has to be cre...
Generate drop of foreignkeys if foreignkey-statement is not provided
We generate DDL on the basis of an external tool and compare the newly generated DDL for each changed DB2 object against the catalog and let Admintool generate the conversion strategy as a workstatement list. Whether an object has changed or not r...
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...
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
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...
Show Packages Subject to REBIND In IBM Change Management When Comparing Objects Using Db2 Object Comparison Tool
When comparing databases between subsystems using the DB2 OBJECT COMPARISON TOOL, the compare is registered in IBM CHANGE MANAGEMENT. In IBM CM on the ADB2C11 panel, you're able to view the registered changes and then utilize the ST (Statements) ...
