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.

LISTDEF support for DB2 Views in HPU RFE 101390

HPU supports to generate a list of objects - 'LISTDEF listname INCLUDE TABLESPACES TABLE owner.tbname' - that is later used in the UNLOAD. But, there is no support to generate a list for DB2 views using LISTDEF.

Use Case:

However internal policies don't allow to unload the table directly (autorization reasons). There are specific DB2 views created to unload the data. There is the need to generate a list of objects (views) that are unloaded by HPU. I already talked to DB2 development and they told me that LISTDEF (a DB2 engine function) is not designed for views and that this in not in plan. They asked me to open a HPU RFE to support that functionallity.
