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.

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.

Implementation/description how to connect the MCM Hub with K8 services via a secure gateway
I currently try to install MCM in one of our IBM internal data centres. In this, it is not allowed to spin up a VM which is visible from the internet. As we would like to create a demo cluster which supports all target clouds, this also includes the K8 services from Microsoft, Google or AWS. My current understanding is, that the MCM Hub needs to be reachable from the Internet to connect these public K8 services. I discussed this with Susi Huesing, Hao Liu and Chris Doan, but I didn't find an appropriate solution. To set this up, I have to use a secure connection, using a VPN (Cisco AnyConnect). I am very sure, that all clients will have the same requirements. So my question here is, how to configure the MCM Client container running in AKS, GKE, EKS etc. to connect via AnyConnect to the MCM Hub!?
Who would benefit from this idea?
All clients, who would like to use MCM in production as I am very sure, that without a secure connection nobody will use MCM
