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.

Enable HTTPS access to the JDBC Gateway admin console via key ring

JGate was most recently enhanced to allow secure access by adding a keystore and password to the startServer script. While functional, this is a security exposure. We would like to use a RACF key ring instead.

NEVER fall back to IMS DBCTL when SQL is not eligible for IMS Direct

We have a requirement to restrict access to IMS Direct only. Users should not have access to IMS Online. In DVM when an SQL is not eligible for IMS Direct DVM directs the SQL to IMS Online despite IMS Online not being enabled in DVM. There is no o...

Utilize IMS Catalog when creating virtual tables

Per IBM direction, we are currently working towards fully populating the IMS catalog. This catalog could be used in a similar manner to the Db2 catalog when creating DVM virtual tables. Instead of providing the DBD, PSB and copybooks when creating...

Support for columns with names longer than 30 characters

DVM currently fails when attempting to create virtual tables over source tables with column names longer than 30 characters. DBMS's including Postgres, Oracle and DB2 LUW allow for longer column names.

Allow Logon to JDBC Gateway Console via RACF group instead of shared credentials

Currently the logon to each JGate console is via a single id/pw. These credentials must be shared by the support team which is not a best practice. When team members leave, all passwords must be changed (if that's even possible). If changing the p...

Provide detailed information about User Exit interface in product manual

Some of the IBM software products such as IMS, Db2 and Db2 HPU, etc. provide User Exit interface to enhance the product's capability to customers' particular requirements. Such products usually have a corresponding chapter or appendix in their pro...

Enable sampling for RUNSTATS

Currently RUNSTATS for non-Db2 virtual tables or virtual views will pull all data from the map and then calculate the stats values. When millions of records are present, the process begins to exceed the subsystem limits on cpu and memory. We would...

AVZLINE support for outbound connections

We have a REXX script named REXUSER, provided a few years ago, that processes connections for ACI/Adabas users. It issues command RXRC = AVZRXPC(SUBSYS,'DISPLAY', 'REMU', 500, 1920 ) then parses the line details. We would like to use this (or simi...

before DVM termination, wait for seconds which defined in CLIENTQUIESCEDELAY until there are no PSB scheduled with DVM.

DVM v1.1 IMS v13 With above env, we issued /P AVZS to terminate DVM while PSB is still scheduled. Then, it caused U3398 error of that application. We believe that termination command should wait till application will be stopped, or at le...
