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.

ADM tools - saving reports

We converted from CA tools to IBM tools, and one of the areas that is not up tp par is ability to save a report into a dataset. Example - I can produce a multi-page Drop-Impact report, but there is no command that allows me to save it into a dataset. It is important that there is a way, consistent between different panels, that we can use to direct reports into datasets. Example - it works fine when we display database objects - command REP allows us to direct the report into a dataset. But the same command doesn't work for Drop-Impact reports.

So an online command that can be executed from any panel of 'DB2 system catalog' tool and allow us to direct the report into a dataset is what we need to work more productively.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. While we view all the enhancement requests we receive as valuable and we would like to implement all of them, in an effort to have maximum transparency we are closing the ones that don’t currently appear on our two year product plan. This is not to say that these enhancements may not still be implemented at some point in the future, as we constantly evaluate our requirements on the basis of customer demand and technical impact and try to deliver maximum value to our customers. We appreciate your feedback and would be happy to discuss your enhancement requests further.

    Hi, this request is specifically about the DB2 Administration Tool of DB2 Tools.

    Many functions of ADM/DB2 Tools can produce multi-page results.

    Sometimes, we can use the REPORT function to copy the results to a pre-defined and allocated print dataset.

    Sometimes, we are put into TSO EDIT mode so we can save the results using tso create command.

    But sometimes, as in the DROP IMPACT function, DB2 Tools does not provide a method to save/print the results.

    What we would like is a consistent method to save and/or print the results of every function in ADM/DB2 Tools.

    Thanks, Mary
