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.
Db2 load ALLOW READ ACCESS support for column organized table
Currently, if a db2 load is happening on a column organized table, users are NOT able to read the data from same table until the load is finished. It's inconvenience for the customer and its users in their daily operation. Thus, the customer wants...
db2look with -printdbcfg must support parameters with "automatic" value
To clone a database and all its objects IBM recommend to use the db2look utility. If you use the -printdbcfg to clone the db configuration too the db2look utility generate the parameter values in the update commands but without the "automatic" val...
Sometimes during a migration diskspace runs low. It would be great to have an option for db2move, which reads/writes files compressed or pipe it through gzip/bz2/...
This would lead to a storage reduction during migrations of roughly 80% plus red...
db2look should offer an option to sort the generated objects
When generating db2look in different server, databases, configuration, the order is not the same (probably because the creation order was different) and it is difficult to compare objects in different databases.
Allow REPAIR CATALOG on indexes to reset version numbers
In Db2 Cloning Tool, index version mismatches cause indexes to be rebuilt on the target rather than using the physical copy. Some of these indexes are very large. Corrective measures would be to drop and recreate the index on the source which woul...
Ability to append to a file when performing an export
When exporting data to files, every export should be in a different file. And it the business requirement is to have all data in the same file, then it is necessary to do that manually with something external to db2.
The new syntax IF EXISTS for CREATE and DROP TABLES (see https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/ideas/DB24LUW-I-259) should also be generated by db2look on demand. This would help and simplify migration scenarios with db2look.
This should also be a...
Db2 should allow an export without characters for columns not characters, or space as column delimiter. Something like:
export to myfile.csv of del
modified by nochardel nocoldel
select * from mytable
There is something to change the col...
