Status Planned for future release

I want 'GitLab Community Edition Link' on my IBM Cloud dashboard

For example, use the'Node-RED Starter kit'in IBM Cloud to create a new resource.

This will automatically create a toolchain and at the same time add'Git Repos '.

after a while

After you finish using the resource, delete the automatically created toolchain.

When creating a new resource using the'Node-RED Starter kit'again

Attempts to create a resource with the same name as last time.

If you do so, creating the git repository will fail. Because there is already a repository with the same name.

I wanted to delete an existing git repository, but I was confused because I didn't know the URL to IBM Gitlab.

I want you to implement the URL to IBM Gitlab in your IBM Cloud dashboard or resource list so that you can access IBM Gitlab at any time.

That way, everyone like me who has forgotten the Gitlab URL will be happy.

Thank you.

    One solution is to add freeform text, or links, inside the new markdown widget. This widget needs to be manually added using the edit dashboard feature, but would at least give you somewhere to put links like this for quick reference.

    I'm glad that the status has progressed. We hope that it will be useful for those who are new to IBM Cloud.

    That would be very nice if we can directly go from IBM Cloud dashboard or menu.
