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.

Add import synonyms capability for Netezza connector in Infosphere Metadata Asset Manager

We cannot import synonyms in IMAM for Netezza connector where as synonyms can be imported for Oracle connector.

We have raised a PMR for the issue(TS001641021 - Synonyms import issue in IMAM for Netezza database). Engineering team confirmed that the Netezza Connector does not support multi-database import, which is how it was designed. and they suggested to open an Enhancement Request via the "Request For Enhancement" website.

Here is the RFE request-
