IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Snowflake Connector Error handling

1) We encountered an issue while using the insert or update option. The continue on error option does not work and the job fails if it encounters bad data. We opened a case with IBM. There is no reject capture mechanism.


Two step solution.


2- INSERT INTO ERRORS_TABLE (select * from table(validate("TEST"."PUBLIC"."LOADBADDATA", job_id => '_last')) );


I have attached the datastage job export (.dsx file) BaseLoadOrigLoan.dsx which ran successfully after including the solution suggested by IBM.

I have also attached the job that failed which is BaseLoadOrigLoan_Beforechange.dsx.

I have also attached the query which is part of the job.

    Is there any possibility that the reject links are being added anytime soon? The above workaround doesn't seem to be working using the load from file option doesn't seem to work. I get the error - SQL Compilation error: Expression 'XXXXX' not supported within a VALIDATE expression

    We have a requirement to load data to Snowflake DW for more than 500 DataStage jobs.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. We'll run a feasibility analysis and consider this enhancement for a future release of the product, based on this.
