Adjust the functionality of AUDIT_JOURNAL_* table functions
I think the current behavior is quite confusing. For example, if I'm trying to retrieve the QAUDJRN "PW" entries from a specific receiver, I might try this: SELECT *
FROM TABLE (
SYSTOOLS.AUDIT_JOURNAL_PW(STARTING_RECEIVER_LIBRARY => 'QSYS',
Currently all ACS installs are manual at deployment of a user's PC and manual updates as needed if the user reports any issues and we notice they are on an older version. We have tried to package ACS into an EXE file that could be deployed through...
The *HIVAL and *LOVAL features in RPG are extremly usefull. But especially when comparing, the compiler assumes, that *HIVAL/*LOVAL are according to the compared field - but often you have to compare a value to the *HIVAL/*LOVAL of another field -...
Add CPF3C29 checking to the DTAARA keyword in RPG IV
The DTAARA keyword in RPG IV does not honor IBM i object names. It allows users to create data areas with upper/lower case characters in the object name. There is currently only one user-facing interface that allows deleting of mixed-case object n...
Add ORDER BY Creation Date/Time to WRKSPLF and add *USRPRF option and System Value for Same
Our end users tend to keep SPOOLED files "forever" so the more days that pass, the longer their list of SPOOLED files becomes. I would be extremely helpful to provide a User Profile-based option for "SPOOLED File Sequencing" that is applied when U...

in IBM i / BRMS
The use of a generic parameter for the library name does not work when trying to restore multiple libraries from a BRMS backup. At times we need to restore hundreds of libraries but the parameter only works if the library exists. We believe this is a FLAW.
IBM Development can review case TS015071289 for further reference and documentation. As stated, this generic restore option should work and it should either be removed from the command prompt OR some commentary put of the HELP text to state that i...
Create an "Get Current Library Name" API in the spirit of Qp0wGetJobID
The current API named QWCRTVCA works okay, but in those times when you only need the current library (*CURLIB) for something, setting up the parameters and calling QWCRTVCA is far too verbose and complex. Please create a new simplified API to retu...
the infoprint product installed on the IBMi includes a windows installable product in /QIBM/ProdData/InfoprintServer/Transforms/Install/Image that installs useful command line utilities like gif2afp to allow batch and command line conversion of i....
