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 product management 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 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.
Support for Podman based runtime for launching IBM Infosphere MDM AE Container images
Infosphere MDM container images are pulled from IBM container registry (us.icr.io) using the Docker Compose Yaml files released by IBM for each versions of MDM AE images.
Ford Motor Company currently has Redhat Openshift container platform v3.11 as its container orchestrator. In order to containerize application and build images there is a developer environment called "localdev" provided in the form of single node Openshift cluster based on Vagrant and Oracle Virtual Box tools.
There is no in-built support for Docker compose in Openshift however docker compose can be installed on the localdev envionment. But, using the docker compose is resulting in authentication error while pulling images from IBM Container registry. Further Openshift v4 wont have Docker runtime and will be expected to use Openshift native Podman tool to run multi-container application.
Hence it will be helpful to provide a way to launch MDM installable image using Podman based Yaml files for configuring the image before deploying on the target namespace of Openshift. It is better to migrate the current docker compose yaml file released with the MDM container images and use a separate shell script to run them using Podman instead of docker compose.
