IBM Sterling Ideas

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.

Usuability with DB query tool

Below are the limitations ,usability issues with current DB tool in v20:

1. Query to be executed needs to be at the bottom of the sql query thereby preventing the ability to run any sql in the page until that is moved to the bottom of the page .

2. Views can't be seen/queried.

3. Tool is not capable of auto suggesting/completing table name and respective column names as can be done on other tools.

4. More than 10,000 records can not be exported at once.

5. Functions/procedures can't be run in this tool.

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

Compared to other available tools in the market db query tool essentialiy restricts the capability and usage of a real db query tool.By enabling above features developers and other users can make most out of the tool.

    Hi Rajkumar, thanks for creating this idea.

    DB Query tool is primarily a web-based troubleshooting tool to help SIs and Application Administrator to look into database. This use case does not require to pull bulk data from database for analytics or other purpose. Thats why certain fnctions (like 2,3,4 and 5 mentioned in your idea) , which are usually available in desktop DB clients are not supported DB query tool.

    OMS provides data extractor tool to extract data in bulk for analytical purpose.

    Could you please provide specific use cases associated with your points so that we can look further into your request?
