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.

In Db2 Web Query SCHEDULER, enhance screen to allow Execution ID to be changed.

Use case for this is DeveloperA makes a report and places on schedule. Later, it is determined that the USER-ID executing the report (i.e DeveloperA) must change. Perhaps, when report and schedule moved from TEST to PROD, or User has moved to new job or left firm. In any case, today you have no way to modify the EXECUTION ID. Should be able to change this field, without rebuilding the entire scheduled item.

    IBM has received the requirement and is evaluating it. IBM will provide a response after evaluation is complete.

    The CAAC has reviewed this Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed. The Web Query Scheduler should be enhanced to allow an execution profile similar to native job scheduler and advanced job scheduler.


    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual Ideas on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your Idea.
