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.
Give the option to make an index "invisible" to DB2
Sometimes, when I have added and index, I have had some surprises in the optimizer using that index when it should not. I would like a quick way to make the index "invisible" to the optimizer and make it not eligible for access paths until I specify for that to happen. It would be much quicker to "flip a switch" than to drop the index (and then have to rebuild it once again to have it used).
