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.

Enhance DELETE control statement to allow "older than xx" option.

The idea is to allow another option on the delete statement. Currently it accepts Start time and End time. I would like to see a 3rd option of "older than xx", where xx could be 10 days or whatever value is specified. This would allow a scheduled job to run, and delete all of the records on the ADMINQ older than 10 days from the current date.

Example: DELETE SERVERTIME 1970-01-01-00.00.00 10days. This would delete all records up to 10 days prior to the current date. I'm not too particular on the syntax of the command, I would just like a way for a scheduled job to run and delete unwanted records on the adminq file.

This is a much more user friendly than having to calculate what the endtime should be.

    How about DELETE SERVERTIME -10? This would delete any record with a servertime older than 10 days.
