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.

Enable reconnect (retry) option for the Oracle Connector and DTS stages

From case#TS003645436

In the Oracle Connector stage the reconnect/disconnect properties are only available when the Oracle Connector is used in conjunction with the Lookup stage (as reference) or as a target. Is there a way to enable these properties when the Oracle connector is setup as streaming? (Input) - also is there a way to enable this same functionality with the DTS (Distrubuted Transaction) stage?

The reconnect option is not available when the Oracle Connector is setup for input, and the option is also not available in the Distributed Transaction stage - we would like to have this option made available.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. We'll assess the feasibility and effort needed to provide this feature, and will consider it as an enhancement for a future release of Datastage.
