  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.

Support the option of time-delayed replication for subscription

there maybe meet some errant operation while maintain working. When errant transaction happened on source database, the data will be lost both at source/target database with processing CDC replication .

during maintain some bank systems, customer need that CDC have the more flexible configuration to support the time-deployed replication for some subscription.

If CDC can support time-delayed replication, support set the delay timeslot by configuration, for example config 3-5 hours by customer, the lost data for source and target database can be found at target database and restore back to source database quickly and system will rework quickly, instead of back from backup system or other way with long time, so the data can be recovered and got from target database.


this feature will helpful to customer maintain working, for example, some application configuration data or period updating data in business system which not oftenly changing or updating. very helpful to position CDC with easy using and flexible replication option.
