IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

DataStage MQ Connector does not support use of the userid and password under UNIX

We are trying to configure MQ Connector to connect to MQ Server using userid and password. Connection fails with "2035 MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED". Connection works only without authentication.

PMR confirmed we need to submit enhancement request to add new functionality.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the request for enhancement will be closed. The request will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback or voting in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Hello, this idea is not visible from public. Is there a reason for it? Can it be changed from private?
