  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 notification 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.

Remove The Need To REORG A Table Up On Performing Table Alter/REORG Recommended Operations

Today when we perform certain operations aka REORG recommended operations against a table like adding columns, dropping columns, changing datatype of a column, altering NULLABILITY of a column etc. the table will be put in a state called REORG pending state. E.g. error message below

SQL0668N Operation not allowed for reason code "7" on table ABC.TEST

This behavior causes a lot of inconvenience and costly outages if the DBA's are not careful. Please explore and remove this requirement of REORG'ing a table upon performing a reorg recommended operation or atleast provide the community with an ONLINE option.

Thanks!

Who would benefit from this IDEA? DB2 LUW Community and IBM
How should it work?

Table alters should be complete ONLINE operations in this new Agile/Dev Ops world.

As DBA's will be performing these REORG recommended operations on a regular basis in the new development world, provide another alternative that does not require DBA's to ask for outages.

Table alter should not require extended outages.
