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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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.

Provide a CL Command Parameter Option for Required when INTERACTIVE
some CL command parameters can be designated as MIN(1) which makes them have a value before the command may be run. We need a way to set parameters to REQUIRED when they are run interactively vs batch. Add a RQD parameter (or similar) to PARM statements in CMD definition source so that RQD(*INTERACT) could be used to override the other parameters settings (such as MIN(1) when run interactively vs batch. See Use Case for example.
As an example: The IBM RSTOBJ command has a RSTLIB parameter. By default that parameter is RSTLIB(*SAVLIB). Which is fine. However, when run interactively, we want the end-user to be required to enter an explicit value for RSTLIB so they don't accidentally overlay existing production data. If there were an option of RQD(*INTERACT) on the PARM/ELEM/QUAL statements that behaved like MIN(1) when Interactive and like MIN(0) when not interactive that would be great. This should also be an option on CHGCMDDFT so we can change existing command parameters.
