This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Is there any way this could be reconsidered, please?
We are creating a Kafka CDC connector and this information is vital to make sure we correctly interpret the data in the journal. Using the system catalog on an ad hoc basis is not the most reliable approach.
If documenting the internal data structure is not palatable, could you perhaps provide a new API or SQL Service that provides an interface to the data instead?
The internal data information is not structured in a way that makes it possible to document. It is a very complex internal structure used for defining a file, and could be modified, extended, or overloaded in the future.
