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.

Always generate ALTER TABLE SQL for Identity Columns RFE 71287

Could you please add a new parameter to Cloning Tool where it will always generate the ALTER TABLE Restart even if restart-valuie is not set in catalog.

If a table with an identity column is cloned from the orginal environment into a "staging" area and afterwards without further updates into the target environment the startvalue for the Identity Column isn't set correctly any more. Therefore it Cloning Tool would ALWAYS check the highest used value and afterwards set startvalue of the identity column onto this value.

    Db2 Cloning Tool always checks the highest used value for identity columns and afterwards generates ALTER TABLE RESTART startvalue if it should be updated on the target Db2 subsystem.
