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.

Eliminate IN list limitation of 32767.

Our organization has a major customer that has run up against this limitation. They have migrated from DB2 LUW and they did not have this limitation. They have IN lists that exceed 100k at times.

Needed By Yesterday (Let's go already!)

    Hello Jerry and team. One of our Db2 development architects is reviewing this Aha! idea DB2AAZOS-I-209. Allowing more than 32767 items in an IN list for all cases will take several steps. Initially, we are assessing the effort to change the IN list limitation to a larger value when the query is offloaded to IDAA and the IN list items are literal constants only. From the SQL query in case TS005958455, it looks like all IN list items were literal constants, no parameter marker or host variable. We'd like to confirm that lifting the limit in this case is useful for your application. If so, we'd pick a new limit (larger than 32767) and would like that input from you as well.

    Additionally, this feature would need to be approved by our leadership team and likely worked as a future release enhancement. Please let us know if this fits. Thank you for your input.

    This is a limitation of Db2 for z/OS and not of the Accelerator. I will move the Idea to the Db2 for z/OS Ideas list.
