IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Cloud and its products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Support Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS for docker containers and CF apps

For non-critical applications or POCs, it will be very useful if we can setup free SSL certificate installation and renewal using https://letsencrypt.org/

    For production use it really is critical that LetsEncrypt and auto renewal be supported.
