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.

Get log when using exports(UNLOAD) to external tables

IBM support team.

The main idea is that when we send backups using ET (UNLOAD) of our databases (DASHDB Cloud) to be able to obtain the generated log of how many records have been exported and this log will be stored in a local directory.

We made reference to this issue in a service ticket with the IBM support team and their response was that currently this option is not possible.

CS1869102 ( For IDB Client)

We tried the following option to save the log but it did not work.

    To address your requirement: "As a client we want to have a record of how many records are exported by each table using ET, in this way we can have more control over our backups."

    Customers can unload to S3 which is supported and provides the details in the log file.
