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.

IBM Unified Ideas Portal - https://ideas.ibm.com/ - Use this site to create or search for existing Ideas across all IBM products that are outside of Power, and track all of your personal interactions with all Ideas.

New IBM i SQL Service to Retrieve Certificate Usage Information

Need a DB2 SQL Service equivalent to API : Retrieve Certificate Usage Information (QYCDRCUI, QycdRetrieveCertUsageInfo)


Use Case:

We already have the CERTIFICATE_INFO table function, this would allow to know the certificates used (by DCM applications)

    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.

    I've done most of the ones IBM hasn't myself. It is available in #SQLTools.
    I doubt they're going to do the RETRIEVE APIs ever, so I've provided those and many, many others as well... and all on V7R2
    But not this one. :)

    Are we really going to ask IBM to write SQL functions for the more than thousands of API's that exist ?

    To me this sounds like waste of time and resources... I would recommend that IBM invests these resources in questions that provide real added value (ie. that don't exist today or for which no API is available or other alternative is available).

    I feel really bad when other RFE's related to for example security don't get fixed but that SQL function thirty-seven is being provided because people are to lazy (either in terms of knowledge of money hiring a developer) to write a wrapper around the API.
