be able to select the ressource group associated to the cloudant service when you create Node-Red starter-kit

We use the ressource group mechanism as a way to create specific cost centre. 

with the current way of working, the interface don't allow to select the ressource group associated to the cloudant service. The cloudant service is created in a default group. The real problem is that it is impossible to move a service from one ressoruce group to an other.

    Marceau, there seems to be an obsolete Node-Red starter in the catalog.  We will have that updated soon.  For now, the workaround is to find the latest starter through the left navigation menu Web Apps > Starter Kits > Node-RED.  The latest starter allows you to select the resource group.

    It is true that we can select the ressource groupe associated with the cloudant service.

    Meanwhile, if you select directly from search bar node-red starterkit you obtain a screen where it is not possible to select the ressource group for the cloudant service.

    Let me know is you share the point

    Thanks for taking the time to submit this request. The capability to select a resource group for a Cloudant instance from the Node Red starter kit has been implemented. Please check it out and submit another request if it does not meet your needs.
