IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

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 your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

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.
