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.

Allow for a single DVM subsystem to connect to multiple IMS subsystems.
Currently DBCTL access to IMS requires that an IMSID be provided in the DVM configuration file. This parameter is limited to a single value and therefore a DVM subsystem must be created for each IMS subsystem. In a single test environment, we coul...
Allow a DVM access method that will prompt the user for a password when accessing JGate resources
Data sources that are accessed via JGate will have a non-RACF security mechanism. We will use ICSF rules to map application ID's and User Groups to the appropriate credentials for accessing JGate, but we cannot use this same approach for individua...
With DVM studio, it's possible of delete the virtuals tables but the time of delete is long. Sometimes I need to drop multiple virtual tables and this operation it’s not possible with studio (I wait one hour). Can you create an option to delete th...
Consistently handle unsupported Db2 datatypes when creating Virtual tables
When creating a Vitural Table for Db2 BLOB and CLOB with traditional access, the wizard prompts that these columns will be omitted. Executing selects against the created VT is successful. If direct access to Db2 is chosen, the same prompts occur, ...
Allow Source DVM to pass Virtual Target System name to target DVM over IDF
We would like the ability for the source DVM to pass information, such as the Virtual Target System name, to the target DVM and make this information available within the rules running on the target. This will allow us to reduce the number of DVM ...
