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.

PostgreSQL instance is only DUAL from build 5607, only-source is needed

Since build 5607 of 27 September the CDC PostgreSQL instance has become DUAL (supports source and target).

For security reasons it would be essential for us to have the possibility to make the instance only source as it is possible to do with the oracle instance, for the oracle instance it is possible during creation to specify the read-only option, this option allows you to create an instance only source.

This is also important because the CDC database user account necessarily requires the "superuser" and "replication" roles on the DB PostgreSQL so the instance can always modify the data of all the tables on the DB so if the groups that manage the replicas and source databases are different it can become a security issue.
