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.
Add Support for BLKSZLIM keyword of TEMPLATE utility
Using the Large Block Interface provided by z/OS, the performance of the Db2 COPY utility can be greatly improved when image copy data sets are created on tape. The Db2 Automation Tool does not currently allow the user to specify the BLKSZLIM ke...
For RPN TS, each partition reorged need a separate IC tape drive, need a way to limit the number of tape drives per iteration of REORG for the IC
If 65 partitions of a RPN with NPSIs are being reorg at the same time, 65 IC tape drives would be required. That is excessive and probably all shops can't support that. Even when no NPSIs, this would be a problem. HAA generates LISTPARTS 4096 w...
HAA$UREO - Max Tape Vols/DASD Units should be created on HAA$DSD as separate fields
Seems having Max Tape Vols/DASD Units is dangerous. These should be separated into two different entry fields. VOLCNT is tape volumes, UNCNT is units. Also these should not be on a general panel, HAA$UREO. This should be on HAA$DSD. The fields rea...
Option required for viewing complete formatted Advanced SQL in Object Profiles
There is currently no option available to (re)view the complete formatted Advanced SQL in an Automation Tool Object Profile.
The only option that is available is to view this SQL is using PF10 / PF11 from panel HAA£OPRU as 80 bytes or so at a tim...
Automation Tool incorrectly building RUNSTAT jobs when TS has NPSI being RUNSTAT
Unfortunately the product has been generating jobs incorrectly from the getgo for RUNSTATS. When using load balancing across 20 jobs, the partitions should be spread across the 20 jobs. This works when the NPSI is not having RUNSTATS. When the ...

HAA did not pick up the need for NPSIs to be reorged when TS was being reorged
SEMHNSA TS partition 278 having 2 NPSIs was triggered for REORG. HAA is run 6 times on Saturday and 4 times on Sunday since this TS is so large, 7 billion rows in some environments. REXX code rebuilds the RGNSA001 so that only 100M rows are reorge...
Option required for creating additional Catalog indexes as COPY YES or COPY NO
The Automaton Tool provides DDL to create additional indexes on selected Catalog tables. At present the DDL used for the various indexes is inconsistent, with some being created as COPY YES and some as COPY NO.A better option would be to standardi...
