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.

Better problem determination when error message is returned to the job submitter

When running a loader job that fails on authorization the submitter of the job does not get a proper message. The message emitted by the IDAA Loader is "HLOU5715E Unknown error during IDAA validation". This is in par with the famous Microsoft Windows message "An error has occurred", and you can also get the impression that there is some kind of IDAA error.
The error is known and a far more helpful message is emitted in the SYSPRINT of the HLO address space saying "AQT10413E The Db2 real-time statistics could not be externalized." together with other information.

    We area removing the need for the authorization required that caused this message. Other authorization needs are spelled out more clearly in error messages.
