Shape the future of IBM!

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,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Utilities (Export, Import, Load, db2look, etc)

DB2_DMU_DEFAULT=IMPLICITLYHIDDENMISSING, if set at instance level then we should not need it to be specified again in import command just like 9.7 clients

We are facing an issue for version 11.1. FP5 where we are able to load the data into a table with a column in a table which has IMPLICITLY HIDDEN column, In the past we were able to run the import and not specified the column name and it has worke...

Allow a WHERE clause for ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to delete data while moving a table

One of the most painful things to do is to delete a huge amount of data. One workaround for this is to export the data needed and then LOAD/REPLACE back into the same table, but this requires an outage of the table to accomplish. If a WHERE clause...

Allow load modifier options in db2move load (generatedoverride identityoverride usedefaults etc.)

Currently when using db2move utility to export from one system and load to another, there is no way to specify load options for any tables with Identity or Generated columns etc. for which we need to preserve the data values, and the db2move load ...

Add option in db2look to not extract LBAC every time

All of the LBAC definitions are extracted and printed every time the -e option is specified. If one just wants the DDL for a single table, all of the LBAC definitions are printed, even if that table has nothing to do with LBAC. A -nolbac option wo...

db2pd -inst attemps to collect PureScale information in a non-PureScale environment

db2pd -inst attempts to collect - quiesceinfo and - iperiodic even though they are not appropriate options for the non-PureScale environment. It seems like db2pd should be smart enough to collect the information appropriate for the operating envir...

DISPLAY UTILITY Enhancement

Add more granularity to the DISPLAY UTILITY command by added a STATUS filter. We may have a hundred utilities running at once, I would like to be able to pull up just the STOPPED ones.

In db2look, for mimic stats, option to include commit each X sentences

In order to mimic an environment, the stats are extracted via db2look, and then inserted a regular execution of the generate file. The problem is that the generated updates could be easily more than 15000 sentences and it has two issues: If execut...

For Modify Utility, enhance to allow selecting SYSCOPY rows by TYPE (full, incremental) and DSN pattern (DBP.DB2.ICWKY*), Modify should also delete rows where there are no media.

Incrementals are only kept 14 days, Full IC are kept 30 days, DSN pattern DBP.DB2.ICWKY* are kept 30 days. Current Modify does not support deleting the SYSCOPY rows. All are kept 30 days.

db2cfexp lacks SSL configuration data

db2cfexp is a very valuable tool to save and maybe restore configuration data. I noticed, db2cfexp is not exporting SSL configuration and hence cannot restore it.

db2val should allow to receive credencial as parameters

The db2val command cannot check databases when using a external security plugin like Centrify. In this case, this command should allow to specify the user and password to connect to a database.
