Would be nice to have for 'DB2 under RACF'-sites that we can see on a object which auth RACF Profile rule is used. And see who/groups are on this profile. And give an message if you dont have auth to see this (in RACF organised)
Add capability of using GEN parameters in change management batch interface procedure (GOCCM)
We had below requirement from the user: We have an existing column in an existing table that we are adding a new RI to a new domain table. If we issue the compare normally using object comparison tool, we get both the table create DDL and the new ...
For the utility history support it will be a very nice feature to include a canned report option which gives the utilities that were running at a point in time for an object or a list of objects e.g. at a database level or currently in scope on th...
Indication of the reason for conversion by drop/create

Dropping at the command line does not allow the capability to have DROP ON RESTRICT ALTERS be generated. When entering DROP in the SELECT field, panels are displayed to accomplish this. This should also be done for DROP at the command line. This s...
We'd like to have a new ZPARM to limit the max number of version for packages. Once this number is reached a new version replaces the older one. Otherwise a COMMAND like MODIFY to facilitate DBA in housecleaning
