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.

Add AUTO-PROMPT job attribute for F9=Retrieve(d) CL Commands on Enter

When using the IBM i command entry F9 or F8 to retrieve a prior CL command, I would like a job attribute that controls whether or not that CL command can be run directly via Enter or Prompted on Enter. This would give us an "Are you sure" failsafe test.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.
    We can not make a distinction between the following two cases:
    1. the user pressed F8 or F9 then typed over the command before they pressed enter
    2. the user pressed F8 or F9 then pressed some other key before they pressing enter
