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.

Move DISRT into primary command and remove 10 object foreground limit

There are various pain points:

Here is a scenario. I wish to identify tablespaces that are in a restricted state and either repair them or start them access force.

I get a list of tablespaces which are normally created by listing the tables in a schema and then issuing 'ALL S' to get the list of tablespaces

Problem 1.
If I type 'DIS' as a command, then if there are more than 10 objects in the list then you are forced to create a batch job or add statements to a WSL. 10 is a very low number and this makes the command unusable as we need to see a foreground results list displayed against which we can issue further commands.
This 10 object limit is used in several places within Admin Tool and is restrictive. We'd like to see this number significantly increased or available as a user controlled parm.

Problem 2.

DISRT is currently only a line command. We cannot issue it against a list of tablespaces.

    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 roadmap. 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
