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.

Unable to add, alter or drop FKs or check constraints under admin tool ALT RFE 122297


In admin tool, I want to be able to easily add, alter and drop foreign keys and check constraints under the ALT functionality.

At the moment I can only access such features under the AL functionality.

This was raised as a PMR and I was told to raise this RFE.

Use Case
For example, I want to use ALT to add a column to a table, then still within ALT I'd like to create a check constraint on that column.<br/><br/>This is not currently possible.&nbsp; I am required to add the column with ALT, then create the check constraint with AL afterwards.<br/><br/>We would expect all AL functionality to be available within ALT.
