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.

Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit IBMI-I-2272 Add System TLS (GSKit) support for SERVER_SBS_ROUTING.


We have hundreds of clients connecting via ODBC/JDBC (the QZDASOINIT jobs).

To enable us to manage these connections we have been using the SET_SERVER_SBS_ROUTING function to route users into different subsystems and memory pools.

These clients now require to be moved to secure ODBC/JDBC connections (the QZDASSINIT jobs).

The lack of SSL/TLS support for SET_SERVER_SBS_ROUTING is now preventing us from moving forward with this security requirement.

Use Case:

To view account/billing (sensitive) information.
