Db2 12 Function Level support means that our products are usable on Db2 12 subsystems with the function level activated and with an updated catalog (maintenance applied).
However, you may not be able to use the new features in the function level. For feature level support in each function level, see the product-specific enhancement documentation.
To determine the Db2 function level on your subsystems, use the DB2L command on the command line of most product panels to display the settings that are set by the product configuration. You can also use the DISPLAY GROUP command in the Db2 Command Processor (option C on the products main menu).
