Increase PNUM limit to a much higher value (e.g. 1'000'000'000)

PNUM is actually limited to 99999 for most CD implementations. This is very low and has for effect that pnum can rotate very quickly. ICC is for example relying the grouping of CD events on this Process ID (which is a non sense as it's not unique, but more an ICC issue here)

What is your industry? Insurance
How will this idea be used?

Increase the maximum value in a way that this Process ID can be considered unique. You can easily have a CD node that is submitting more than 100000 processes a day. This makes the select stats biaised when it returns CD stats of different processes submitted but carrying the same Process ID...

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe that it would be valuable to provide a more unique way to track unique C:D processes. We will accept this enhancement request and will look to place this item on the roadmap moving forward.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
