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.

Full support for aggregate function with DISTINCT in OLAP SPECIFICATION

Use of DISTINCT with e.g. COUNT function in OLAP specification (PARTITION BY clause) returns error SQL0441N (SQLCODE -441). Due to the fact that Db2 does NOT support the use of DISTINCT option in such cases, we have a major impact with COGNOS gene...

Allow CREATE/REPLACE for users other than owner

Currently on Db2 LUW CREATE OR REPLACE is only allowed for the owner of a database object. CREATE OR REPLACE authorization should be opened up to allow create/replace by anyone who has the ability to drop the object and to create the object with a...

Population of V12 new added Catalog columns during activation of Function level V12R1M50 and avoid it later during executions of ALTER TABLESPACE because of contention of packages.

After you apply the PTF for APAR PI86123, the first ALTER TABLESPACE, populates any null attributes for objects created in function level V12R1M100 or earlier. When the one-time population occurs for an ALTER TABLESPACE statement, Db2 must quiesce...

Add "IF EXISTS" syntax to all DROP statements

More and more SQL is stored in repositories and needs to be applied in odd places and orders. One syntax element that supports this is the "IF EXISTS" on a drop statement. This causes a statement to not count as a failure if it finds no object to ...

Fill gap with Oracle optimizer on RP tables

DB2 optimizer in v10.5/v11.1 has still several weaknesses in generating correct plan when using RP tables, because it bases its plan only on global stats when partition (data and indexes) stats are available. Case TS001150102

Automated Re-creation of Select-Star Views

If a view is created by using a 'SELECT *' statement, the view is not updated when a new column is added to the base table. An example: create table dm_tab(N integer, M integer) organize by row; insert into dm_tab(N, M) values (1, 2); create view ...

Allow modification of column-organized columns

Currently, in column-organized tables you cannot alter or rename columns and you even cannot drop columns. The only allowed operation is to add a column. This renders the column-based-tables pretty useless because in a normal environment, it must ...

Enabling readonly mode for database or user. (DB2 LUW)

Would like to see a db level and a user level parameter to enable readonly mode at database level or user level. Currently need to run set of statements to achieve this, which makes management difficult. A single statement to enable readonly mode ...
