Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

MON_GET_CONNECTION is lacking CODEPAGE of connection
A 3rd party application connects to Db2 and we get SQL0302. The 3rd party vendor figures out, it is a double conversion to UTF-8One of the most valuable debugging informations was the codepage of the connection to the database, which is available ...
In the case of a hang, we only have the material for root-cause analysis if we were able to collect db2fodc information before the system became fully unusable. A small moving window of such information written out to disk on a regular basis would...
implicit GRANT EXECUTE to SYSMON authority for all monitor routines(RIMS)
Customer has to grant the EXECUTE privilege on the monitoring functions to a user who already has the SYSMON authority. They would expect that a user of the SYSMON_GROUP holds this privilege implicitly. This looks like a restriction to the monitor...
