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.

IF NOT EXISTS should not be saved as part of stored routine source

When creating a stored procedure or function with the IF NOT EXISTS optional clause included, the option text is currently included in the saved source code for the procedure. This is not true of any other database object created with the IF NOT EXISTS clause included!

This should be changed such that the optional clause is removed before saving the procedure source code in sysprocbody.

    It would also be very nice if comments prior to the create would be ignored and not included in the  schema.   We have seen this with some n-house procedures as well as some 3rd party ones.

    This would be very helpful for us at Equifax!.
