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.

Allow for scripting of DataStage environment variable export.

Hi,

This is a enhancement request to facilitate the scripting of the export of DataStage environment variables to a file. This operation can be manually executed using the DataStage Administrator client but I cannot find an equivalent command which will perform this task which I can script.

I'm using the commands below to add/change/list env variables in the DataStage project, but dsadmin (or istools) do not support scripting of an env var export to a file.

Some environment variable commands below but no export option!

./dsadmin -envadd

./dsadmin -envset

./dsadmin -listenv


I have been advised by IBM support that this operation cannot currently be scripted (please refer to Case TS008595246)


best regards,

David Murphy.
