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 an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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 Power teams 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.

Enable IBM Navigator for i to access servers running older OS releases
Using the latest IBM Navigator for i and adding a node to our V7R2 server no information on CPU usage etc. was returned. Clicking on the "View SQL" and then running that SQL via ACS returned the expected information.

Omnifind Text Search management in New iNavigator or Access Client
The Omnifind Text Search Server management is missing in the Acces Client Database menu and the new iNavigator GUI. It would be very helpful for us to have a user friendly GUI to manage the Omnifind indexes.

With every new release of IBM i, every new Technology Refresh, the number of Db2 for i Services is growing and enhanced. As a result of this the work of system administrators is moving from using 5250 emulation to running SQL statements in RSS.
Within the new Navigator for i for nearly everything there is the option to get the SQL statement behind what is being displayed.
For IBM i Navigator for i => TCP/IP Servers the SQL button is greyed-out. So the SQL statement behind what you a...
SQL service to list hardware components, locations and adapter card firmware levels
Records of hardware assets and firmware levels is increasingly important. In the same way that the SQL services for PTF/system firmware has greatly simplified the management of PTFs, this enhancement would ensure that adapter cards are not overloo...
