IBM Power Ideas Portal


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).


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:

Search existing ideas

ACS - Database Table Functions

Allow me to edit the contents of a table from the ACS Database context.
I can View, Clear, Copy, Initialize and Reorganize Data but not Edit the content.


Use Case:

This option is heavily used by our database administrators in order to view and manipulate data within a table in pre-production environments. Also not having this option available in neither the ACS nor the Navigator for i prevents them from adopting the ACS software.

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed. Most needed are alpha, numeric, and date/time. This is most useful for development purposes.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    For more information about CAAC, see www.common.org/caac

    For more details about CAAC's role with RFEs, see http://www.ibmsystemsmag.com/Blogs/i-Can/May-2017/COMMON-Americas-Advisory-Council-%28CAAC%29-and-RFEs/
