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.

MIG panel option for HPU Unload to allow selection of 'REPLACE' in LOADOPTS parm RFE 124519


When driving HPU through a MIG Data unload/load the resulting load is always generated as RESUME YES.
If the target tables already exist with data then we need to do a LOAD REPLACE.
We are looking for an option on the MIG panel for REPLACE to be selected and inserted into the LOADOPTS.
We would also like this option visible in the JCL if the batch JCL generate option is selected.

Use Case
As stated above, sometimes the target tables are not empty and we want to run LOAD REPLACEs<br/>Having a flag that can be set both in the online panel and also visible in the JCL if a Batch Generate is selected would enable this to be incorporated into our dev ops automation process.

    Correction: The same effect can be achieved by specifying REPLACE YES on panel ADB2UTC "Specify Utility Options - LOAD".
