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,
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.
Encrypt password in the DVM JDBC Gateway credential management system
Royal Bank of Canada and likely other customers have the following need. With DVM and the QMF Server and the JDBC Gateway the credential management system of Globals and the AVZDRATH job will be a security\auditing issue. 1) If the users are mappe...
(This IDEA item was written based on my own experience in DVM POC test at customer site.)
So far, DVM does not provide "SQL Reference" kind of product manual which describes SQL syntax rules supported by DVM. Somebody said it is because DVM is co...
Apply Copybook when defining Db2 for z/OS virtual table
(This IDEA item was written based on a customer requirement revealed in DVM POC test at customer site.) So far, customer cannot apply COBOL copybook (assembler DSECT, PL/I DCL statements, etc. also) when defining DBMS (RDBMS) virtual table includi...
Currently creating package binds for Db2 z/OS is completely separated from the DVM subsystem. I can roll out the packages to all Db2 z/OS subsystems before any DVM subsystems are created. For Db2 LUW, in order to install the binds, I must first de...
Utilize IMS Dynamic Allocation Library for IMS Direct access
Currently DVM requires that RECON datasets be utilized for IMS Direct access. RECON datasets are not used in our test environments since DBRC is not enabled. The same information can be pulled from the dynamic allocation libraries, which are typic...
Allow configuration to specify hlq for MMAP and MFL datasets
Currently, when users are creating a Web Service directory, they are prompted to provide a High Level Qualifier for the MMAP dataset. If they provide their own ID, DVM will successfully create the dataset, but does not have access to it resulting ...
Allow DVM to access alternative credentials from a RACF or ICSF repository instead of using global variables
We would like for DVM to be able to seamlessly access RACF in order to retrieve alternative credentials for users that are accessing data behind LDAP security.
The current solution is to use AVZDRATH utility to create the alternative credentials...
Ability for DVM subsystem started task ID use an alternative ID when connecting to other systems (DB2, IMS, JGate,etc.)
The ID that we use to run DVM is not able to connect to other systems (DB2, IMS, JGate,etc.) via password, passticket, etc. During startup, DVM attempts to connect to these systems in order to collect metadata. These connections fail, which causes...
Studio enhancement to add a "Validate SQL" action in the right-click context menu for the SQL Editor
This would be similar to the current "Execute SQL" action, except a SQL on one or more selected statements would be performed, and the results would be written to the SQL Messages tab (success or SQL Exception).
