Request for Enhancement

Here is the list of current RFEs for RPG: https://ibm.biz/rpg_rfe. You can

  • Vote for the RFEs you think are most important.
  • Add RFEs to your watch list.
  • Add your own comments to RFEs. If you have a use case for the RFE that is not mentioned yet in the comments, be sure to add a comment about your use case. The information in the RFE about why it would be useful is at least as important as the number of votes for the RFE.

    Make sure you're seeing all the comments. If you see something like "1 - 10 of 15 comments", click the button to view more comments.

If you don't find an existing RFE that describes what you want, open a new RFE:

  1. Check the "I want to specify the brand, product family, and product" option.
  2. Select
    Brand Servers and System Software
    Product family Power Systems
    Product IBM i
    Component Languages - RPG
  3. Write the title of your RFE clearly so that other people can easily find your RFE and vote for it.
