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.
Ver display on IUI panel
If there are multiple instances of different NDM ver running, it will be easier to identify if the IUI panel has ver displayed. Attached screenshot will give the idea of what i meant. In this the right-side box has ver hardcoded. if there is a pan...
Retrofit the Enhancement Request CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" to CD v6.1
This idea CONDIRECTZ-I-8 "Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter" was previously raised for CDz CONDIRECTZ-I-8, and it was informed that it would be available in v6.1. However, after the upgrade to V6.1, it was informed that this ...
Security Exit must be usable by different SFTs and the STCname should be part of the RACF profile namess
In our environment we run several Connect:Direct stc's in one environment.The provided Security Exits do not offer a possibility to setup separate profiles for these stc's.We would like this to be changed.Second what we ask for is to add the STCna...
Open MCS.CLIST until either TCP or SNA support available
NDM modify commands will fail before local node sign on complete either via TCP or SNA, so open MCS.CLIST until either TCP or SNA support available is more appropriate especially for users who depend on modify command to monitor NDM.
Replace Notify option with email option
Not really a new idea. I am just passing along details on how one can issue an email or text message from an NDM task using RUN TASK PNODE (PGM=IRXJCL) -
Standardize Connect:Direct messages
Currently, Connect:Direct has multiple message qualifiers, making automation difficult. requirement is for the Connect:Direct address-space to use a consolidated standard message prefix
ConnectDirect to throw message when it gets hung.
If ConnectDirect is hung there is no way to tell if it is, there must be a heartbeat check to confirm if NDM is healthy.
To authenticate users/applications based on the Certificates rather than using userid and passwords
Currently, Any user trying to access NDM has to logon with userid and password either manually or via batch jobs. In order to avoid clear text passwords, Users can be authenticated based on certificates.
Improve on C:D z/OS the last STEP COPY with all information after many restarts on the File Transfer incoming traffic
Description: To avoid information inconsistency of the STEP COPY (restart) of the file received and the C:D statistics information as records and VTAM bytes. Proposal is for C:D z/OS Caching all of the STEP COPY (restart) information on incoming F...
Improve on C:D z/OS the caching all of the RACF userid support on the File Transfer incoming traffic
Description: To reduce the allocation time of a file, would be better to implement on the C:D z/OS the caching of all userid that RACF (ACEE) support on the inbound traffic, that is basically to memorize the accesses and minimize the queries to th...
