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.
We are preparing to license DVM software and implement it across our production systems starting mid-March 2021. Applications are planning initial use of DVM in production starting the end of March 2021 with a full production rollout in June 2021....
Currently, when implementing web services, the final step is to refresh z/OS Connect. The refresh will make available all web services that have been added to DVM regardless of whether the supporting area want them to be available. For example, ar...
Currently, when new web services are added, z/OS Connect must be refreshed to recognize the existence of a new operation or group of operations. The refresh must be done by issuing a REST call to /dvs?Refresh. Ideally, there should be a way to inc...
Allow for the creation of a Web Service directory as part of the import
Currently, a Web Service directory has to be manually created on the DVM subsystem using DVM Studio before web services can be migrated. Any steps that cannot be accomplished during the import (either JCL or REST call) is not guaranteed to be repe...
Ability to refresh a single Map and not the entire Maplib in batch
Modify the AVZMREFB REXX to allow for the refresh of a single VSAM MAP and not the entire Maplib. When controlling the refresh of VSAM maps in a batch environment where the VSAM files are reloaded frequently there is the need to control the refres...
The customer is migrating from Shadow to DVM and found out the hard way that SP calls are not supported under DRDA. Switching all the SP calls to RRS is not acceptable due to overhead and non zIIP eligibility.
In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.
Allow JGate to run X wide on a highly available env w/op the need to manually configure each instance
We have the need to run several instances of JGate on separate LPARs on the same plex and configure DVM to load balance between the instances on order to handle situations where one LPAR goes down. Currently, these instances are completely separat...
