    Hello Ravikumar,

    Please do let me know how to continue on this one, i am aware that db2 is a separate product.

    But in the case i had submitted it was recommended to raise idea against the ITM product.

    Please advice.

    After review with ITM team,

    After internal board review, it is determined this request needs to go to DB2 team.

    ITM team only provides the license portion. DB2 is a separate product provided with ITM.
