IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Parameter display WORKSTATION USER ID and WORKSTATION NAME

We use InfoSphere Data Replication for z/OS Remote Source v. 11.4.0.2 and we have detected that the following properties are not displayed in the details of the DDF SUMMARY in the MAINVIEW monitor:

WORKSTATION USER ID

WORKSTATION NAME

These parameters need to be visualized for the correct administration and allocation of Mainframe resources.

We open the following case for this situation TS003967148 and the laboratory has asked us to raise a new idea with this requirement since our Mainframe resource management team is based on these parameters for audit processes, currently as we do not send information to them parameters the resources assigned to the tasks raised by the CDC will be limited or even completely blocked.
