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 CLI connect to remote database with encrypted password file

The DB2 CLI command line does not provide a way to use an encrypted credentials file to connect remote DB2 databases.
The idea is to have a similar solution like the encryped password file for SQL/Q-Replication.
The replication tool asnpwd can create and maintain encrypted password files.
Apply as well capture program are able to read, decrypt and use the password file.
This file contains the database alias, userid and password in an encrypted way.
The idea is to have a similar solution for the DB2 CLI command line in order to have more safety in Shell and/or Perl scripts.

The DB2 CLI connection shall be:
db2 connect to use file .
