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.

DB2 Automation Utility to convert from IBM RACF DB2 External Security to IBM DB2 Internal Security.

We are requesting a DB2 Automation Utility to convert from IBM RACF DB2 External Security to IBM DB2 Internal Security. This utility must be able to do the reverse of the RACF/DB2 Conversion Utility that was used to convert data in DB2 Internal Security Catalog Tables to RACF Permit commands that was used to update RACF DB2 External Security Classes.

The sample RACF/DB2 Conversion Utility was stored at URL address below:

http://www.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/features/racf/downloads/racfdb2r.html

We found a copy at URL address below:

ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/eserver/zseries/zos/racf/racfdb2/

Details about sample RACF/DB2 Conversion Utility is documented in chapter 9.3.6 in IBM Redbook below:

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg247959.pdf

This DB2 Automation Utility should be written to read the RACF database or unload records from the RACF database for all RACF DB2 External Security General Resource Classes and convert data from those classes into DB2 Grant commands to be use to update DB2 Internal Security.
