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.

UI enhancement: adding Restart-options for CDC subscriptions without data

When the subscriptions failed, it always need customer to restart it manually.

in banking environment there are too many subscriptions need to monitor and manage, even coding to management is also hard work, and it will impact real-time efficiency.

There are more and more requirements on CDC supporting after-failure options for the subscription. for example, some subscription can be restarted automatically when failed without data inconsistency, some need to restart manually...


this feature will be very useful to customer maintain, especial to customer with CDC lots using.

    IBM update.

    Thanks for filing this requirement.

    We guide that our many clients in production environment implement an automatic monitoring approach (outside of the product) such as in this example: https://github.com/fketelaars/IIDR-Stats-Warehouse When issues are detected the logic on what happens next e.g. alerts or automatic restarts is also addressed outside of the core product but via use of the provided apis/chcclp scripting language.

    We will not be accepting this requirement for specific product enhancements. Please consider the approaches outlined above.
