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.

Salesforce Connector doesn't support Bulk Load for Salesforce Objects where PK Chunking is not enabled or not supported

Salesforce Connector within DataStage currently has two options for retrieving data

1) Real-Time Query Mode
2) Bulk Mode

But the Bulk Mode functionality is currently limited only to Salesforce objects that support PK Chunking. Working with Salesforce support they have suggested that bulk mode and PK chunking need not be coupled. So, decoupling the Bulk Mode functionality to always use PK chunking would be a major win especially considering most of the objects (custom objects included) do support bulk load but we are unable to use it because of a datastage limitation.

A case was opened and closed for this same purpose (TS001104439).
