Bring MATLAB interface back for CPLEX

Please bring back the MATLAB interface for CPLEX. We rely heavily on this feature since toolboxes we use are Matlab exclusive.

Create a Graviton ARM build for Linux for cplex

Useful for better performance on AWS compute.

Add maximal delay constraint for startBeforeStart, startBeforeEnd, ... constraints

I often have a constraint between interval variables that limit the maximum delay between the start/end and start/end of interval variables. I'd like a native, efficient method for implementing this constraint. I currently use constraints using fu...

Empty links in CPLEX Optimization Studio Documentation

There are many 'empty' links/pages in the CPLEX Optimization Studio Documentation when I search for topics. I limit the scope to CPLEX and IDE, but still get many, many blank results. I spend a great deal of time clicking through blank pages to fi...

Add support for .NET 6 and Linux OS in CPLEX APIs

We developed a product based on .NET 6 that relies on CPLEX core functionalities and we need to make it run both on Windows an Linux operating systems. The .NET 6 libraries are platform independent but the CPLEX Optimization Studio only provides a...

Add git support to CPLEX Optimization Studio

We request to add on-prem GitHub integration into IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio to version control OPL models, datasets, and options files. We’d like to add functionality to clone a repository, commit/sync to a repository, to create/switch between...

Support for Linux ARM

We need a build for Linux ARM64. Preferably redhat enterprise 8. We're aiming our software for the ARM architecture and CPLEX for ARM is currently only available on OSX, but not for Linux. This is blocking us.

add doopl in the CPLEX distribution

relying on docplex python API got much easier since docplex was included in the CPLEX product. doopl which is a python package that allows to call OPL model from python code can be download from https://pypi.org/project/doopl/ but having doopl in ...

Interface between CPLEX and .Net CORE 5 on LINUX

We are developing applications using .Net CORE 5. This is a great language to develop solution on either Windows or Linux. We have no issues using CPLEX with Windows as we have the cp_wrap_cpp_dotnet2010.dll running but we miss a Linux version of ...

Implement nonconvex quadratic constraints in CPLEX

CPLEX already supports nonconvex quadratic objectives, but not yet constraints, even though they bring a lot of flexibility in modelling.
