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.

Support Subsystem names and multiple Job SubType Enhanced for all API format choices for calls to QGYOLOBJ

All other selection (filter) criteria work when calling QGYOLOBJ except "Active Subsystem" and multiple "Job Type - Enhanced". The issue with Job Type may be a bug, but the Active Subsystem should not be limited to only format OLJB0300

    I agree, that format 0200 has an option to return *JOBQ, *OUTQ, or *ACTIVE status. But it is an option, and *ACTIVE (only) can be requested/specified. Therefore the subsystem filter should be applicable.

    When I need info on jobs running in just QUSRNOMAX and QBATCH subsystems only, I have to completely rewrite my QGYOLJOB interface? I don't need any of the info from 0300 but I do need format 0200 info, which is NOT available when using format 0300.

    So please reconsider.

    Filtering by "Active Subsystem" is limited to format OLJB0300 because that format returns ACTIVE jobs only.

    The other two formats (OLJB0100 and OLJB0200) return ALL jobs, including those on a JOBQ, where the subsystem is not yet known, and those on an OUTQ, where the subsystem name is no longer accessible.

    We do not plan to change this.

    I spoke to development and the Job Type Enhanced limit is a bug, not a feature and it has now been fixed via a PTF. The other issues is an RFE situation. Whereby filtering by subsystem is currently limited t format OLJB0300. This request is to also support subsystem filtering when using format OLJB0200.
