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.

Today the log files get added to backup image at end of backup, which could easily cause that log files need to be retrieved from archive that they can be added to backup image. Adding the log files as soon as possible would avoid time consuming a...

Verify OVERFLOWLOGPATH is valid at the BEGINNING and allow override in RESTORE DATABASE command.
When restoring a DB2/LUW database Db2 currently restores the database and then abneds if the OVERFLOWLOGPATH is invalid. A restore can take many hours and having the restore fail at the end of the restore wastes all those hours.
In a shared instance, (multiple DBs serving different applications) its almost impossible to DROP a database, without having to shutdown the entire Instance.
In order to drop the database, it must be deactivated, otherwise it fails.
So, if ...
Allow to access a database during a pause in a roll forward
During a roll forward, it will be helpful to access the database in read mode in order to identify the point where to open the database. If it is not the desired point, then apply more logs, until find the desired point.
