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.
Connect:Express Zos : use of batch process P0B2DIR
Connect:Express Zos : with batch Process P0B2DIR, we want to use the function LIST and EXPORT with only one SPN (or SFN). today, we can use only these functions with PARTNER.NAME = *
CX Number of transfers requests in a mode
To have a MVS command (MODIFY to the CX address space) to query the number of requests in the CX which are in the mode we would specify in the command ('U' for the running requests for example).
CX/ZOS Possibility to swap the logging so it is not increasing indefinitely
In CX/ZOS, the SYSLOG and other ddnames are increasing indefinitely. If they are Sysouts, which is convenient, this can cause Spool problems. It would be great to have the possibility to swap them, as Z/OS offers it for the ddnames JESMSGLG a...
CX SYSUE1 Refresh only if it has no errors
Actually, if there is errors in SYSUE1, a refresh is still done. That can hang a lot of requests in TRC=4608L. It would be great if there was a verification of the file before the swicth and that the switch be rejected in that case.
Connect:Express for Windows: please provide a silent install (non-interactive)
We would like to automate Connect:Express for Windows instances.
We could add arguments to the command line or provide a properties file to setup.exe.
Upgrades could be done this way too.
Connect:Express for Z/OS : Possibility of transfers of PDE-E with RECFM=U
Actually, CONNECT:EXPRESS FOR Z/OS can transfer files whitch are PDS-E except if there RECFM is UNDEFINED. It would be useful that CONNECT:EXPRESS FOR Z/OS could transfer PDS-E with RECFM=U.
Be able to customize the default location of logging files
It would be very useful to be able to change the location of the log files.Currently it's located on [CX]/config.
Handle spaces in physical name for Sterling Connect:Express UNIX
Actually, Sterling Connect:Express doesn't handle spaces in physical names for a PeSIT file transfert (sender's side)
CX SYSSSL IH higher priority than IA=*
In the SYSSSL PROFILE, if there is an entry with IH and an entry with IA=*, the IH entry could be used. Actually, it's the IA entry which is used because priority is on IA.
MQ notifications on CX
When notifications are sent using HTTP, as you only have one HTTP server to send the notification you cannot do any load balancing between multiple nodes. If HTTP server answers too slowly due to a large load, HTTP response code can be sent before...
