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 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.

End to End child cluster lifecycle Management via CP4MCM

Hello Team

CP4MCM cannot manage the child cluster life cycle end to end for the moment . It can only delete the provisioned cluster

I would like to raise a feature request for below items.

CP4PCM should be able to resize the child cluster from MCM UI.

CP4PCM should be able to start/stop the child cluster from MCM UI.

Why we need this?

I believe the CP4MCM is meant for managing multiple cloud service on multiple cloud and with this we also would like manage the entire lifecycle of the child cluster accross the different cloud, without this feature the provisioned cluster via mcm cannot be managed fully and which is a bottleneck in terms of usage.
