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.
DB2 has many commands which display or alter the status of something. There are a lot of distinct environments from which the commands can be executed (z/OS console, DSN session, TSO DSN command processor, IMS or CICS terminal, special STPs, IFI-interface, ...).
Depending on the environment the answer messages are written to different sometimes private sometimes volatile unarchived targets.
For backtracking purposes during error determination processes it would be very helpful to have a command confirmation of all executed commands archived in one central place (in addtition to the todays behaviour).
Please confirm all modifying DB2 commands (-ACCESS, -ALTER, -ARCHIVE, -CANCEL, -MODIFY, -RECOVER, -REFRESH, -RESET, -SET, -START, -STOP, -TERM, ...) with text, timestamp, return code, id and connection information of the requesting user to the joblog of the DB2MSTR address space.
