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.

Allow Logon to JDBC Gateway Console via RACF group instead of shared credentials

Currently the logon to each JGate console is via a single id/pw.  These credentials must be shared by the support team which is not a best practice.   When team members leave, all passwords must be changed (if that's even possible).  If changing the password is not supported, the JGates have to be reinstalled/reconfigured.

Access to the JDBC Gateway Console should be controlled via RACF group.  This allows team members to manage their own passwords based on internal company requirements and makes it easy to remove members from the group and job requirements change.

In addition,  the RACF group could also be granted access to CONNECT to JDBC locations in order to test the connections.
