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.

Add ADPATYP field in the ACCOUNTING SAVE file and NEST_ACTIVITY_TYPE column/label to the PDB tables and CSV files

When trying understand what's going on in your system, you typically need to zoom in at the package level at some point. When doing so, it is important to understand what 'type' of package you are dealing with - if it is just a regular program or whether is related to a stored proc, SQL PL stored proc, UDF, trigger...

When using the OMPE ACCOUNTING reports that the information is available for ACCOUNTING TRACE as well as ACCOUNTING REPORT reports (referred to as 'ACTIVITY TYPE').

When using ACCOUNTING FILE (to produce a load file to load into a Db2 table (PDB), or generate a CSV file) this info is also available as (field) ADPATYP, (column) NEST_ACTIVITY_TYPE .

HOWEVER, this info is NOT available when using ACCOUNTING SAVE (CONVERT) option. As a result , the field ADPATYP and column/label NEST_ACTIVITY_TYPE is not in the PDB table nor the CSV file either
