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.
Allow specification of IP Ranges or Subnets in Trusted Context definitions
We would like to use Trusted Context to restrict access from specific IP addresses but the current definition requires each IP address to be specified individually. This is cumbersome for our OpenShift infrastructure where it would be more appropr...
A restful service contains one and only one SQL statement and is, simply put, a mini-static package. It was delivered with a couple of problems. Firstly, the only way to tell if this static package is a restful service is to look at the HOSTLANG c...

Stop package invalidation after ALTER MAXPARTITIONS
These days in an agile world we have to ALTER PBG spaces on-the-fly to raise the MAXPARTITIONS value. Sadly this ALTER, even though it is an immediate ALTER, sets all dependent packages to VALID = 'N' which is, of course, a disaster.
A number of our common customers run DB2 utilities from third party vendors and IBM replication solutions. They are requesting that our LOAD and REORG utilities write the old dictionary pages to the log for later retrieval by a replication product...
Add REMARKS column to SYSIBM.SYSDATABASE and COMMENT support for database object
We would like to ask you, to add the REMARKS column in SYSIBM.SYSDATABASE and support for COMMENT statement for databases. There is no possibility currently to store some form of a description for databases in DB2 catalog. In big sites where thous...
Change OBDRX2AC Tracking From OBD Level To TS Partition Level
Currently after an ALTER ADD COLUMN has been executed on a partitioned TS , all subsequent reorgs go through the compression cycle until all partitions have been reorged within the same modify recovery range. For very large TSs with many partition...
enhance smf records for reporting secure connections
When just beginning to implement secure db2 ports (sometimes called encryption in-flight), it is helpful to report on the performance of queries that are secure vs queries that are non-secure. This can help us to fully tune our applications for th...
Modify the DSNJU003 utility to allow it to define anything stored in the Db2 BSDS
When creating and new Db2 member, we must bring it all the way up before we can create the bufferpools, size them, and set the thresholds. We would like the ability to defined them prior to starting the Db2 member/subsystem. When creating an alias...
