IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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 vote them if they matter to you

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote 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 notifications 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Provide options to build iOS .ipa and Android .apk files completely in the Bluemix cloud

Please see the following link for a primer on the issue we are facing

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41624892/how-to-build-a-react-native-ipa-and-apk-application-in-bluemix

 

Ideally we would like a turnkey method to build .ipa and .apk files.  Ideally and natively through the Pipeline would be nice.  CircleCI does this today as an example.

Alternatively we recognize we can do Android .apk today on Bluemix by jumping through some hoops with build scripting it.

iOS lastly is a blocking issue for us.  We would at a bare minimum like Bluemix to provide an option to allow us to spin up a Mac image to build an .ipa on.  Again if we can do this directly from the pipeline without jumping through hoops that would be ideal.
