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

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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Migration of server database to a different database system

Some years ago a customer began adopting UrbanCode Deploy using DB2 as database system, but he doesn't have skills on DB2.
Now he wants to enlarge his adoption upgrading UrbanCode Deploy to an HA configuration, he already has Oracle RAC and also he has Oracle skills.
The customer needs to migrate the UrbanCode Deploy DB from DB2 to Oracle.

In the UCD installation package exists the procedure "migrate-database.sh" that is also documented in the section "Migrating the server database" on Knowledge Center: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS4GSP_7.0.5/com.ibm.udeploy.install.doc/topics/migrate_database.html
In a test environment we have used successfully the migration procedure to migrate a UCD DB from DB2 10.5 to Oracle 19.3, but on KC the following statement is reported:
"The server installation files include a script that migrates the server database from Derby to another database system. You can not migrate from any database other than Derby."

The request is to support the existing procedure migrating from DB others than Derby or to provide different scripts to migrate from DB2 to Oracle.

Use Case
Scenario: 1. Stop UrbanCode Deploy 2. Execute migrate-database.sh scripts 3. Have as results all DB tables migrated from DB2 to Oracle and all indexes created 4. Stop DB2 services 5. Start UrbanCode Deploy
