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).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Catherine - would you please tag the customers who have asked for this today?
More clarifications on the use case. Several Lines of Business have their apps hosted on the Bluemix Local Platform. An organization is assigned to each LoB. Each LoB can decide to have several spaces, one for test, one for integration, one for pre-production, etc. Apps need to reach backends (CICS, DBs, MQs on mainframe for example) hosted on corporate private network (outside of Bluemix, but still in private network). We want to make sure that Bluemix apps from LoB1 can access backends from LoB1 and only from LoB1, apps from LoB2 can access backends from LoB2 and only from LoB2, etc. We can even imagine than for a given LoB, the access to the pre-production backends is allowed only for the apps in the pre-production space (and not for the apps in the integration or test spaces).
Catherine - I seem to be missing the "why" here. What's the underlying use-case? Are they trying to restrict Local apps from connecting to other internal local apps and endpoints or external ones? If internal, why so? If external, why not do it with a proxy?
