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 a notification 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portal, please send email describing the issue to for resolution. For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit

Support for installation of App Connect Operator components from customer-managed container registry on Kubernetes.

Customers want the ability to install App Connect Operator components from container registries they control.

This is currently supported (and documented) when the container platform is OpenShift, but documentation (and support) lacks when the platform is Kubernetes.

Idea priority Urgent
Who would benefit from this idea? Any customer planning on running App Connect Operator components on Kubernetes who have the requirement to run security scanners on container images in repositories they can control.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking time to raise this enhancement request / idea on App Connect Operator. However we are going through some strategy shift for 2022 and at this moment, we are unable to plan to take up this idea for implementation. Having said that, we will have this idea parked for "Future Consideration" and the status is updated to reflect the same. Thanks!
