IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at http://ibm.biz/IBM-Data-and-AI-Portal-Register . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

Post 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 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.

Enable DSN line command on panel ADB21T

In order to view the data set name(s) for a tablespace, you type line command DSN next to a tablespace on panel ADB21S.

If you want to know the data set name(s) holding a table, you cannot type the DSN command next to the table. You have to go to the tablespace screen (panel ADB21S) by typing line command S next to the table and then typing the DSN command. This involves going to an extra screen.

When you choose a table from panel ADB21, you arrive at panel ADB21T. The tool uses this SQL to fill in the details on that screen -

SELECT T.*

FROM SYSIBM.SYSTABLES T

WHERE T.NAME LIKE 'xxxxxxx%' AND T.CREATOR LIKE 'xxxxxxx%' FOR FETCH ONLY

The SQL has already pulled back the database and tablespace name for that panel, so 2 components of the data set name(s) have already been obtained.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Any user of the tool wanting to know data set name(s) for a table
How should it work?

On panel ADB21T, enable the use of the DSN line command against a table.

When you enter the DSN command, the tool runs this SQL -

SELECT STRIP(TP.VCATNAME)||'.DSNDBC.'

||STRIP(TP.DBNAME)||'.'||STRIP(TP.TSNAME)||'.'

||TP.IPREFIX||'000'||TS.INSTANCE||'.'|| CASE WHEN TP.PARTITION BETWEEN 0

AND 999 THEN 'A' WHEN TP.PARTITION BETWEEN 1000 AND 1999 THEN 'B' WHEN

TP.PARTITION BETWEEN 2000 AND 2999 THEN 'C' WHEN TP.PARTITION BETWEEN

3000 AND 3999 THEN 'D' WHEN TP.PARTITION BETWEEN 4000 AND 4096 THEN 'E'

END || CASE WHEN TP.PARTITION = 0 THEN '001' ELSE

SUBSTR(DIGITS(TP.PARTITION), 3, 3) END AS DSNAME, ' ' AS DSEXIST,

TP.PARTITION, TP.VCATNAME, HEX(TP.VCATNAME) AS XVCATNME

FROM SYSIBM.SYSTABLEPART TP, (SELECT NAME, DBNAME, CASE WHEN INSTANCE =

1 THEN '1' ELSE '2' END AS INSTANCE

FROM SYSIBM.SYSTABLESPACE

WHERE DBNAME = 'xxxxxxxx' AND NAME = 'xxxxxxxx'

UNION ALL SELECT NAME, DBNAME, CASE WHEN INSTANCE = 1 THEN '2' ELSE '1'

END AS INSTANCE

FROM SYSIBM.SYSTABLESPACE

WHERE DBNAME = 'xxxxxxxx' AND NAME = 'xxxxxxxx' AND CLONE = 'Y' ) AS TS

WHERE TS.DBNAME = TP.DBNAME AND TS.NAME = TP.TSNAME AND TP.DBNAME =

'xxxxxxxx' AND TP.TSNAME = 'xxxxxxxx' ORDER BY TS.INSTANCE, TP.PARTITION

FOR FETCH ONLY

There doesn't seem to be any reason why that SQL cannot also be run from panel ADB21T. It doesn't rely on any information from panel ADB21S, because the database and tablespace name will already have been obtained when building panel ADB21T.
