  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.

    Thank you for submitting this Aha! Idea to the Db2 for z/OS team. We are pleased to inform that APAR PI89931 delivered: LOG CLIENT TCPIP ADDRESS FOR RACROUTE REQUEST=VERIFY AUTHENTICATION PROCESSING AT A DB2Z SERVER and another approach to consider is to enable the SERVAUTH class which can prevent user's from accessing Db2 when accessing outside a specific network zone.
