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.
File Connector - Definition for Internal table Location

Ability to mask a column by both a data class and a tag
We want the ability to have a data protection rule that uses an "And" clause and a "Tag" and appropriately masks based only on the "AND TAG = " clause. Right now we found that when we tag a column with the data class and a tag, the column only mas...

Error message improvement when failing to convert tablespace to UTS PBG
