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.

Provide "replace/override" capabilities when using the CDConfig Tool for Map.cfg and Usr.cfg import
Currently the Connect:Direct CDConfig tool does NOT support the "replace/override" functionality when importing Netmap or User entries. It currently will update existing Initparms, but for some reason it doesn't update existing Netmap or User ent...
Protect or encrypt or sign all Audit records to protect or capture changes
Audit functions in CD are not consistently recorded in an immutable form so that attempts to alter them are inhibited. Many configurations in UNIX CD are not audited at all because the configurations are in plain text files with no tracking. All...
Signon from Connect:Direct Fileagent with JCU-File

Make the Connect Direct Agent component an option to be installed if the installer chooses to do so
Not sure what version of Connect Direct UNIX this was introduced, but I have noticed in Connect Direct 6.0 +, it automatically installs the Connect Direct Agent component and the Agent is in a started state. This needs to become an option during ...
Connect Direct File Agent for Windows: Lock configurator if in use by another user.
In our shop, sometime two or more people could be making updates to the same File Agent configuration. Currently one users change may not actually get implemented if the configuration is open or updated by another user. It would be great if ther...
