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).

Fixed public IPs manageable by user

Because sometimes, a VMs fails, so generate a new one creates a new IP, but if IP of first IP was given in a CVs or link in a forum, then it fails because it goes to the first failing IP.

    You can achieve this by using Portable Public IP address rather than default SoftLayer's Public IP address.

    i.e. once you get the server, get another portable public IP and assign to that server of yours.
    then you use that portable public IP as a primary.
    if new replacement server is ready, then you can simply re-assign that portable public ip from old server to new server.
