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.

CDC engine for DB2 LUW : Getting support for range partitioned, MDC, RCT tables out of the grey zone

Since CDC 11.3.3 there is a documentation page in knowledge center which explicitly states that range partitioned, range clustered tables and partitioned table will not be replicated by CDC for DB2 LUW.

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSTRGZ_11.3.3/com.ibm.cdcdoc.planningadeployment.doc/concepts/udb_supportedtabletypes.html

However, CDC 11.3.3 lets one replicate these type of tables (without the slightest warning) and it works flawlessly like it did in the past, so I am wondering why the specific statement is made that these table types are not supported.

Range partitioned tables for instance were supported since CDC 6.5.2
by setting the system parameter "range_partitioned_table_support" to true.

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSX3HK_6.5.2/com.ibm.cdcdoc.cdcfordb2luw.doc/concepts/replicatingdb2partitionedtables.html

This functionality is still there under CDC 11.3.3 and working perfectly.

The current RFE is to make these table types officially supported again.

I have multiple clients using (or wanting to use) these types of tables in conjunction with CDC.
