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.

Planned for future release
When using REOPT(ALWAYS) on a batch package to deliberately avoid filling the Dynamic Statement Cache (DSC) the SQL is, correctly, not inserted into the DSC and is not exrternalized by an IFCID 316. However this then "hides" the workload from moni...
Standardize and allow LISTDEF PARTEVEL syntax for MODIFY STATISTICS utility
Currently MODIFY STATISTICS utility does not support LISTDEF with PARTLEVEL and throws an error like in example: LISTDEF DB2RK INCLUDE TABLESPACE DS0HUZX.S0HU37P PARTLEVEL(20) TEMPLATE COPYIC DSN(&SS..ICR.&DB..&TS..P&PA..&UQ.) ...
issue DISPLAY BLOCKERS instead of DISPLAY CLAIMERS when DRAIN timeout
Currently when DRAIN fails during REORG, a DISPLAY CLAIMERS is issued. The draw back is there is no "age" information, so user does not know which thread is the blocker, because the claimer could also be waiter.
