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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
New privilege for IMPORT into a restrictive database
Granting DATAACCESS authority works but is not a desirable option as the user would get access to all tables. Granting CONTROL or INSERT/SELECT, without DATAACCESS, returns SQL0551N.
As a result customers are left on their own to pursue and figure out the grants required which is not trivial. As an interim fix we've created a technote that describes the required grants (#1645117 ).
There are roughly 20 grants required to enable IMPORT REPLACE in a restrictive database. The purpose of this requirement is to encapsulate all grants into a single new privilege for restrictive databases.
