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.

Document external networking delay when starting a container

See the post at Stack Overflow
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30310602/docker-container-cant-leverage-external-cloudant-service-network-resolution

It should state in the documentation that it is necessary to write start scripts with delay if accessing external network. 1 second seems to be enough for me.

    This will be addressed in a futurhttps://www.ng.bluemix.net/docs/containers/container_single_ov.html#container_single_cli and search on "If you are connecting to an external app from the container " it will show the following: If you are connecting to an external app from the container, there is approximately a 30-second wait after running the container process before it can connect to the specified IP address. Then, you can verify that the app is functioning in the container by running:   nc -zv <public_IP><public_port>. e release.
