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.
Provide Management Console monitor and operator functions access to all subscriptions
This is related to the CDC Db2 z/OS engine. Allow users of Management Console who are designated with monitor or operator functions to access all subscriptions without requiring select access to the source tables within the subscriptions. The current design of Management Console requires select access on the source tables which means access to the data within the tables. Due to separation of duties / GIS requirements, standard IDs in our shop do not have select access on application tables. Without this access, the DBA team is unable to perform basic health and monitoring of the replication environment or start and stop subscriptions within Management Console using their standard IDs. They must first check out an exception ID, which requires approvals, is audited and is active a limited amount of time, to perform those functions. This is not a sustainable approach for day to day monitoring and support of the environment.
