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.

ACS RSS make CL prompting act more like CL prompting in SEU/RDi

CL prompting in SEU or RDi allows me to apply the default value and keep it in the code so that I can know what value is being used.

When prompting in ACS RSS and keying in the default value, the tool removes the keywords that have the same value as the defaults.

I want to have those keywords in the command string.


Use Case:

Open a Run SQL Scripts (RSS) session
type in cl:[your command]
Press F4 to bring up the command prompt dialog.
Fill out some of the keywords with non-default values and others with default values.
Press Enter.

Only the keywords with default values remain in the source.

I tested this in 1.1.8.8.

    Thank you for submitting your Idea to enhance IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS). After evaluating your request, we understand its value. At this time, we will not be able to provide the exact behavior you have requested. However, we could provide an option for all parameters to be returned with their defaults set. You could then edit/remove the ones you do not want. Would that be an acceptable alternative?
