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.
Why isn't CLIENT_USERID special register populated correctly by default(RIMS)
The customer was looking to create a table trigger using the CLIENT_USERID special register in order to populate a column that would indicate the actual OS user that last updated or inserted a row in a table. He later found out that this special register is actually empty by default. Because of this he can't do it. He doesn't understand why the 'CURRENT USER' special register is rightly populated by default but not the 'CURRENT CLIENT_USERID'. Customer is requesting through this DCR that the default for the CLIENT_USERID special register be changed from being empty to the actual operating system userID used by the user. Also called the EXECUTION_ID. Thanks
