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.

IBM i, currently at V7R4M0. Created CL program to retrieve the QSYSLIBL and QLURLIBL system values. Compiled without errors. When manually calling the CL program, the following error message was received.
Additional Message Information
Message ID . . . . . . : CPF1095 Severity . . . . . . . : 40 Message type . . . . . : Escape Date sent . . . . . . : 10/25/21 Time sent . . . . . . : 13:22:24
Message . . . . : CL variable length not valid for system value QSYSLIBL. Recovery . . . : See the IBM Knowledge Center, http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i/welcome , for information on the valid length of system values.
The same message occurs with the RTVSYSVAL SYSVAL(QUSRLIBL) command.
Using the link listed (http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i/welcome) I could not find anything indicate the correct CL variable length to use for either the System or User Library List system values. I found general information about retrieving system values in the CL Programming documentation, but not the variable lengths for these specific system values.
It is only by prompting the RTVYSYVAL command, placing the cursor on RTNVAR field, and then pressing the HELP key that a list of the variable type and length was found. It would be helpful if the error message could direct one to documentation showing the variable type length for the various system values. Or at least suggest using the help text.
Application programming (retrieving system values).
