IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

Requesting change to CHCMDMUT utility used to apply CDC maintenance

Currently the CHCMDMUT utility generates and executes DDL required for maintenance updates. The utility has a CURRENT SQLID parameter which is intended to be set to the Security Identifier that is being used to run the IIDR CDC for z/OS instance. The ACID running our CDC z/OS task has limited security privileges by design to meet current audit applications. The privileges are sufficient for the operation of CDC but do not include the ability to drop/create objects. Currently we have to temporarily grant SYSDBADM privileges to the started task ACID, run the CHCMDMUT utility and then revoke those privileges. Audit rules and interfaces with security administration teams make this process difficult, especially in our Production environment.

    Engineering is investigating feasibility. It is valid. This will be considered for our backlog. Additional updates will be provided if/when this is added into the CDC roadmap.
