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.
Contents of Hidden columns can only be viewed by explcitly naming them in a SELECT statement. There is no problem with this but there are times when I want to
a) know that a column is hidden from the column panel ADB21TC
b) issue a SELECT that will display the content of these columns without hand writing a SEL statement.
The driver behind this is that there is more and more use of hidden columns that as either a DBA or app developer need visibility of the contents. This could be for data analaysis, debugging etc. Not always knowing there are hidden columns when writing SQL each time is not productive.
The use of temporal tables and archiving are good examples of where hidden columns are used.
