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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a 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 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 offering manager team 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 notifications 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.
Allow greater flexibility when amending Secure+ parms
Having a process which is reliant on a person logging onto an ISPF panel to update something like a TLS setting is no longer tenable in a modern IT environment. Automation and self service are the order of the day and the way Secure+ updates are b...
Enhance STATs Log TP Record to Report Send and Receive Time Count
This is the enhancement request per email discussion to enhance TP Records to Report Send and Receive Time Count in the time interval.
Extensions to Compress with Connect:Direct
Our clients who are transferring from Connect:Direct are using windows.However, because of the smaller lrecl of the file being transferred, it will not be compressed for the following third specification: 1) CD z/OS to CD z/OS transfer will be in ...
Be able to pass mixed case variables from NDM process to IRXJCL
We do a lot of work with File Agent where all the files are in OMVS zFS filesystems. We have the need to use a RUN TASK to call IRXJCL and pass the file directory & name especially when the combined name is longer than 72 characters and can't ...
Issue a message when CDz reached NODE Specific Max PARSESS Limit
CDz does issue SVTM082I when CDz as node hit the node specific SESS.SNODE.MAX. However, it doesn't issue any message when it reached Max PARSESS. Could you add a corresponding message for this so that we can easily figure out it hit the limit?
Have statistics Records (CT and maybe others) indicate the true node a transfer was sent to when ALT.NODEDEF is coded in the Netmap for a node
Currently if two nodes are defined NODEA and NODEB in the netmap and NODEA has ALT.NODEDEF=NODEB coded, if NODEA can not sent to its primary IP address coded then the file will be sent to the IP address coded on NODEB. The issue is that the CT sta...
Improve diagnostic accuracy of Secure+ error messages
We often get Secure+ error messages (prefix CSPA) that don’t necessarily indicate a Secure+ issue. This makes it difficult to monitor for errors. The error messages that have caused us the most difficulty are:
CSPA202E SSL handshake failure, re...
Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter
With SPOE, the SNODEID presents a security vulnerability. The SNODEID is hard-coded in the process in clear text. Anyone authorized to use CDZ and able to read the file where the SNODEID is coded, typically in the process library, can create and s...
CD for z/OS - customisation of ISPF panel library for scroll amounts & CF enhancement
Hi. I have 2 enhancement requests, but they both relate to the ISPF panels for CD for zOS.
1. The default scroll amount on various panels is set to PAGE. I think the CSR setting is more flexible. As the panels do not remember your settings, I h...
Write "** WARNING ** DMGMSGFH NO MESSAGE RPLS TO USE" to CDz Log Instead of only in CDESTAE DD
During recycle of CD, we noticed following warning message in CDESTAE. We consulted IBM CDz Support and were told we need to take a dump the instant that we see the message informing of the shortage. Could you please write a WTO message to the log...
