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 ...
Remove the need to have SEF (Update) in order to create Web Service directories.
We want our application areas to control the creation of their own virtual tables/views and the web services structures. Currently SEF (Update) is required for the creation of Web Service directories. This access would also give them the ability t...
Provide the ability to update DVM Virtual data using Db2
Currently DVM supports the creation of UDTF's on DVM virtual tables. This provides the customer with the ability to use Db2's SQL engine and Read DVM Data. This proposal is to add functionality to DVM to support updating DVM virtual tables using a...
Only allow access to AVZMAPP files in the context of DVM (Studio, ISPF, etc.)
Currently, developers must be granted read/write access directly to the MAP datasets in order to create virtual tables. Developer access to these datasets should only be allowed within the context of the DVM provided interfaces (DVM Studio, ISPF, ...
