Need to be able to move owned object of a user that is removed from Web Query to another user.

When a licensed user is removed from Web Query, his owned objects are removed after a notification, but without any control.
If reports or schedules, that would be necessary for business, are removed, , there could be unexpected failures like schedules failing, data missing etc.
It would be most beneficial, if there would be an option to move all owned objects to a new licensed user that could be picked from a list.
This should be similar to DLTUSRPRF OWNOBJOPT(*CHGOWN).
Without that feature one needs to check each folder individually in Manager Mode, which can take a long time depending on the number of folders used and bears the risk of missing to change an object.


Use Case:

When an employee, that created Web Query Reports leaves a company, somebody else needs to be in charge for his objects.
Especially the objects that are owned and the run id in schedules need to be adjusted.

    Thank you for submitting your request. After careful consideration, we know that we cannot deliver this enhancement soon, so it is being declined. However, this request does align with the future strategy of Web Query and we believe it may have future value, so it has been added to an internal list for us to keep in mind in the future.

    IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
