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.

Status Not under consideration
Workspace Db2 for z/OS
Created by Guest
Created on Jun 3, 2020

Full Column Match and I1 Access on SQL with Correlated Sub-Queries Containing Column Expressions and Supporting IoE

Some queries with column expressions - DATE(A1.EFCTV_TS) <= DATE('04/05/2020') for example, and an Index on Expression to support the expression are achieving I1 access while others are not. It appears this is because of how the query is currently parsed. Since transformation is done prior to costing, sometimes the transformation is not done to make sure that the index is still considered for costing.

    Thank you for submitting this Aha! Idea. Db2 for z/OS development reviewed it and determined there isn't sufficient context to evaluate what situations that you are referring to. Which examples do & do not result in I1 access based upon your experience? Is there a case where this was reported to Db2? Please provide more information so our review of this idea may continue.

    Thank you
