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).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Missing documentation link from previous comment:
Function related to this RFE was recently provided via PTF (see below) which would allow a user to do their own automatic pre-start job tuning via the API and SQL service.
We still have no plans to create an automatic tuner at this time.
The API, QWTRAPJS, is currently available on 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4 with the following PTF's:
7.2 - SI69201
7.3 - SI69210
7.4 - SI69214

The SQL service, PRESTART_JOB_STATISTICS is available on 7.3 and 7.4 with the following PTF's:
SF99704 Level 7 (for 7.4)
SF99703 Level 18 (for 7.3)

Thank you for submitting your request. While this would be nice to have, it's not something we can contain in our current plans/schedules, so I am declining the request at this time.
CEAC has reviewed the RFE and we believe the functionality will be delivered in 7.4 TR2 and 7.3 TR8.
Should be available 15th May 2020.
The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that is important to be addressed. IBM i's selling point is the automation for ease of use, so this would definitely be great to have.
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.
