Improvements to the Transformer Component in CP4D:
- The Variable Stages: only one stage is visible at a time, and it is not possible to view the entry fields with its properties.- The output derivation: if the link is long, it is hard to know what fileds are to be derived, and whihc transfromatio...
We want to integrate files in JSON format, the JSON schema file is available. We use the Hierarchical stage. But when we want to import this definition into the libraries (datastage componant / schema library / add resource) the file is treated as...
Setup for DR/Resilience, and dependency between services
The HAScripts ( InfoSvrServices and InfoSvrEngine) do not cover all the processes now required for a full DataStage installation. Some of the processes are set up as services on install e.g in /etc/systemd/system I can see DFDServer InfoSrvKafka I...
Stage Variables: It is challenging to view all stage variables simultaneously and discern their interrelationships. Additionally, it is not possible to identify the types of fields in use. Output Derivation: The box for adding field derivations is...
Jobs API - have synchronous call to launch Datastage jobs
One of our customer (CNP in France) is evaluating the CP4D-DataStage. They have DataStage 11.5 and actually migrating to 11.7. They have a framework (BASIC code that orchestrates the DataStage jobs) that is the centerpiece of their DataStage proje...

Avoiding conflicts for multiple users working at the same time on a DataStage flow
With the web interface, two (or more) users can now work in parallel on the same flow. And the last one saving will overwrite all the work done by the others. It would be good to have a mechanism to prevent multiple people working at the same time...
File Connector - Definition for Internal table Location
We need the table location to be optional when we define it as an internal table. When the location is not user-defined, the Datastage must define the create table command, but it does not need to define the location. This is important because the...

Support of IBM DB2 Data Server Driver Package (instead of DB2 Data Server Client)
Support of the different DB2 Data Server Driver Packages instead/in addition to DB2 Data Server Client. The big advantage is, that the Driver Packages are much smaller and also easier to install. Also they don't need any additional DB2-User.
