Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Enable DVM Studio to be able to quickly capture environment data needed for problem resolution
We are sometimes asked to provide detailed information for a Case we have opened on DVM. Information includes the current build, IN00, trace browse, map definitions and sometimes the underlying data that is causing the issue. If functionality wa...
Support the ability for the JDBC Application name to be passed through TOR to PEER
We currently have a need to use the JDBC Application name to set schema values on virtual tables pointing to Db2 tables. This works fine for a single DVM, but when we have a DVM-to-DVM (TOR-to-PEER) situation, the application name is not being p...
Allow for the creation of UDTF without the cross memory constraint to Db2
Currently when I attempt to create a UDTF, I must have a Db2 subsystem defined to DVM that is running on the same LPAR and it cannot be a data-sharing Db2 behind a DVIPA. Step one would be to eliminate the need for a Db2 subsystem to be selected ...
Wile executing a RESTful API that uses a Data Virtualization Manager service, it is resulting with an AVZ7200E abend when a JWT token is used for authentication/authorization. The same API is executed properly with no abend when using Basic Auth...
Currently, when implementing web services, the final step is to refresh z/OS Connect. The refresh will make available all web services that have been added to DVM regardless of whether the supporting area want them to be available. For example, ...
Allow for the creation of a Web Service directory as part of the import
Currently, a Web Service directory has to be manually created on the DVM subsystem using DVM Studio before web services can be migrated. Any steps that cannot be accomplished during the import (either JCL or REST call) is not guaranteed to be rep...
Ability to refresh a single Map and not the entire Maplib in batch
Modify the AVZMREFB REXX to allow for the refresh of a single VSAM MAP and not the entire Maplib. When controlling the refresh of VSAM maps in a batch environment where the VSAM files are reloaded frequently there is the need to control the refre...
In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.
Allow JGate to run X wide on a highly available env w/op the need to manually configure each instance
We have the need to run several instances of JGate on separate LPARs on the same plex and configure DVM to load balance between the instances on order to handle situations where one LPAR goes down. Currently, these instances are completely separa...
Ability to link DVM subsystem with z/OS Connect Service Provider in Preferences
Within DVM Studio, we are able to add multiple z/OS Connect Service Providers in the preferences section. When refreshing or executing the web services, the top entry is always used. If DVM cannot dynamically determine which z/OS Connect server ...
