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.

export data from tables out of a backup image

Introduce a new parameter to the export utility to be able to export data from a table that is in a backup image.This functionality is especially useful for data extraction without touching/impacting the source system

db2 "export to employee.del of del modified by coldel\t select * from test1"

DB2 Export cannot export data with a two-digit delimiter (\t). If I want to export data separated by \t, DB2 will not be able to support it

One of the most painful things to do is to delete a huge amount of data. One workaround for this is to export the data needed and then LOAD/REPLACE back into the same table, but this requires an outage of the table to accomplish.If a WHERE clause ...

ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE should immediately fail or at least warn when source table is ineligible for SWAP

Even after upgrading the database to Db2 V11.5 and beyond, older tables with check constraints and/or generated columns that were created before V9.7 will still cause the SWAP phase of ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to fail with SQL0668N reason code 10. The und...

db2logscan should be able to read compressed logs
