Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Create a separate role for federation.

I tried the suggestions made by John yesterday and it seems to be working so here are two ways to enable user to use federation in self-service mode.   1.      Grant user a sysadmin privileges which comes with elevated privileges. User can even make changes to db2 configs. 2.      Another option is to create the server definition in data server manager as sys admin user such as bigsql and create user mapping for each and every user, and then let user create the nicknames of tables they like.   I was discussed with my boss and he doesn’t like either suggestion. First solution exposes a larger set of privileges than required, and another option increases the security risk and add additional overhead. May we request for an enhancement to create a low privileged role just for federation?
